By A Customer on March 3 2001
Format: Paperback
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.

I love it! This is my favourite companion to turn to when I get
stuck in uncertain pronunciations. If you're a person who likes
Received Pronunciations, then Longman Pronunciation Dictionary
is absolutely a handy and desktop reference for you.
Just browse this book everyday, you'll sound more RP daily.

HASH(0xab52c0e4) out of 5 stars An Invaluable Resource July 15 1999
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover
As a theatre voice & speech trainer, I have found this book to be an invaluable resource. It is a must-have for all actors. It deals well with both English and American pronunciations and the variations of word pronunciations. I feel it is probably the best of the pronunciation dictionaries, even though it has shortcomings in it's distinction between the consonant R and vowel R-coloring.

HASH(0xab53bbdc) out of 5 stars A must for those who want to speak good English June 25 2000
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
this dictionary is comprehensive enough,it includes both American and British pronunciations. I may say it is very useful for non-native speakers as their accents may combine several ones. Ordinary dictionaries cannot help much as language is changing every day and even in Received Pronunciation(RP), there may be several pronunciations for a word. And the older generation, middle generation as well as young generation speak differently. Ordinary dictionaries usually just include one pronunciation. Collins Cobuild dictionary is better in a way that it provides more variations. But this variation is not comprehensive enough. If you want to buy a pronunciation dictionary, either this or English Pronouncing Dictionary(Cambridge University Press) is your choice.
