Multicultural London English

Multicultural London English | TELT | Scoop.it

The speaker displays many of the features of a British accent known widely as Multicultural London English (MLE), such as producing vowels in e.g. FACE and PRICE as monophthongs, not dropping /h/ sounds (/h/-dropping is common in London accent Cockney) and pronouncing voiced dental fricatives in e.g. the as a [d].  There are glottal stops, which are less common in Afro-Caribbean or African English accents, and /l/-vocalisation. The speaker also has a more syllable-timed speech rhythm; instead of pronouncing the phrase from all walks of life as /frəm ɔːl wɔːks əv laɪf/ it sounds more like [frɒm ɔː wɔːks ɒv lɐːf], with a full vowel in each syllable.

Nice idea for exchanging teaching activities AND sharing feedback. (In my experience with teacher education, we spend too much time on planning and not enough considering implementation.) Plus a link to a corkboard site like Wallwisher I hadn't seen before - lino
