The Winning Voice Weekly Tips

Stop being lazy!

Americans in particular have very lazy diction. Here are a few major diction points to pay attention to: Don’t say “ta” for “to.” Words ending in ing like coming or going should not be pronounced as “comin” or “goin,” unless you’re being deliberately casual for effect. Many words that end in “s” such as “words” or “ours” should be ended, instead, with the “z” sound“wordz” or “ourz.” Some words ending with a “d” should be pronounced with a final “t” instead—“helped” should be pronounced like “helpt.” In most cases, better diction and cleaner pronunciation is really a matter of LISTENING to yourself and FOCUSING on not being sloppy.

TESTIMONIALS

Mary McKitrick

I had had a few months of voiceover training before finding Charles Michel, but was spinning my wheels a bit. Charles’ approach really resonated with me and once I started working with him, I made rapid progress toward my goal of recording my first (commercial) demo and marketing my work.
