A Three-Day Intensive in Phonetic Transcription

 

This intensive three-day workshop, for actors, voice/speech teachers, clinicians, and coaches, will offer focused instruction on narrow phonetic transcription, consistent with the approach laid out in Dudley Knight’s Speaking with Skill and the six-day Experiencing Speech workshops. Knight Thompson Speechwork places special emphasis on the physical actions that produce speech sounds, and this intensive is designed to develop participants skills in hearing, modeling, and transcribing these sounds.

Experiencing Speech is a prerequisite for the Phonetics Intensive.

 

Three days

  • Awareness and practice of precise articulation action.
  • Producing and recognizing all the sounds in language.
  • Practice with detailed (narrow) IPA phonetic transcription.
  • Practice reading phonetic transcription
  • Detailed instruction and practice with IPA diacritics, including those found on the “Extended” IPA chart.
  • The use of technology (software, apps) to manipulate speech samples for transcription.

This workshop is for those who have taken Experiencing Speech and/or Experiencing Accents and are looking to improve their transcription skills and mastery of descriptive phonetics.

We strongly recommend taking a Phonetics Intensive before taking Experiencing Accents, though this is not an absolute requirement.

All three workshops—Experiencing Speech, Experiencing Accents, and the Phonetics Intensive, are prerequisites for the Teacher Certification Program. (Prospective applicants to the Teacher Certification Program who feel that their skills in phonetic transcription are strong may opt to “test out” of the Phonetics Intensive requirement.)

Testimonials


Before I started integrating Knight Thompson Speechwork into my voice and speech courses, I always had a contingency of students who were terrified of dialect work and especially the International Phonetic Alphabet. With KT Speechwork my students gain physical knowledge through rigorous play. Learning the mechanics of speech has never been easier or more entertaining.

Knight Thompson Speechwork training has given me a practical approach to accent training that is deliciously rigorous, thoroughly embodied and exceedingly satisfying.
