Please join us Monday, December 10th, at 4pm (EST) for our 18th Knight-Thompson Speechwork webinar! “What is MLE?” will be an hour-long online discussion of the Multicultural London English accent, or “MLE,” possibly pronounced [ˈɛmɪˌli̽]. The discussion will kick off with a facilitated conversation among linguist Paul Kerswill, coaches Mary Howland and Linda Nicholls-Gidley, and New York actor Noah Anderson about the linguistic features and development of MLE, and how it is taught, learned, and used as an accent for actors. The conversation will be followed by a Q&A session engaging all attendees and panelists. The event will be facilitated by Diane Robinson, chair of VASTA’s Teaching & Learning Committee, certified Fitzmaurice Voicework teacher and student of KTS, and owner and founder of Chicago Voice Center.
The Registration fee is $10 to cover hosting costs.
Once a month, every member of the KTS community is invited to connect, collaborate, and share all things KTS related. If you have taken Experiencing Speech or have been introduced to fundamental Experiencing Speech practices, or if you are interested in this aspect of the work, this webinar is for you! Your KTS questions, solutions, phobias, phenomena, details, observations, obsessions, and fancies are all invited to the conversation. Our aim for the Webinar Series is to keep us connected on regular basis, sustain our KTS conversations, and strengthen our growing KTS community.
Our webinars were inspired by VASTA’s forum on “Things that Work.”
