Dialect coach for “Lord of the Rings” treats us to the manners of speaking in Britain
Whether and how this speaks to cultural and language differences, it’s also interesting to consider differences in accents within just one language. In this video, created by PJamBarker and based on a BBC Radio 4 feature, dialect coach Andrew Jack offers viewers a tour of the British Isles through the various English accents of its residents. (Jack provided dialect training the Lord of the Rings trilogy and developed the Middle Earth accents for the films, in addition to many other film and theater projects.)
