Spoken English of People in Responsible Position: A Book and Tape Training Course
Spine faded.; 211,  pages + audio cassette tape. Page dimensions: 136 x 100mm. "In some walks of life accents are an advantage, especially for people working in their home locality, but anyone reaching a position of responsibility in any community has to be able to converse with a wider audience." - from the Introduction. "Because it is invisible, the sound barrier is more subtle than other barriers based on, for example, education or money or skin pigment. People do not usually notice their own voice when they speak, so they can live for years unaware that their voice causes them to be rejected as being of the wrong social group or from the wrong place." Includes diagrams of vowel-glides. ; 8vo. Bookseller Inventory # 10911
