These recordings of Comma Gets a Cure were all made by trained speech teachers who teach some variety of Received Pronunciation (RP) speech, or Standard British English, for the stage. They will be useful to those interested in learning what various British speech professionals recommend. If you are an RP-speaking voice-and-speech professional and care to submit your own recording, please email us your mp3 and bio.

Please keep in mind that this page contains recordings by trained speech teachers only and does not represent the entire collection of this dialect on IDEA. Indeed, IDEA contains several more examples of subjects whose speech could be categorized as Received Pronunciation or Standard British. For more examples of that dialect, we suggest visiting the main England page and/or entering “Received Pronunciation” or “Standard British” in the search function. And visit Wikipedia for more information.
