Thursday, March 17, 2011
On this St. Patrick's Day, you may be hearing people attempting their best Irish accents. Because these attempts are usually bad, we've invited a professional dialect coach to help.
Listeners: call us up and try to stump the dialect coach. Charlotte Fleck, professional dialect coach and dialect professor at Brooklyn College, will guess whether your Irish or Irish-American accent is real or fake. And for you fakers, she'll offer advice about how to improve your imitation.
