A Must For Actors
*The Longman Pronunciation Dictionary is a highly useful tool for performing artists of the English Language. I take it with me from gig to gig and use it in rehearsals. It helps to have an understanding of the International Phonetics Alphabet (IPA) but the sound key in the introduction will guide you through its use.
*This book is a must for everyone seriously interested in English pronunciation. This book shows the pronunciation of what might be typically used by newscasters. However, the idea that a person can learn to speak 'good English' is insulting to millions of people who are very proud of their own regional dialects, which may be considered by non-native speakers of English as 'bad'. If you want to learn to speak 'good' English, hop in a time machine and go back to a time when 'standards' were more severely enforced. (Say, Axis countries in the late thirties.)
