Publisher's Summary

This episode is part of a second BBC Radio 4 series of Stephen Fry's witty and incisive programmes looking at the oddities of the English language.

Speaking Proper. It may be that elocution classes for children are being replaced with "Presentation Skills" courses for adults, but we still see effective communication as the key to success. Stephen Fry announces a field day for pedants in his investigation into what nowadays counts as speaking proper. As heard on Radio 4 in August 2009.

    "Unsurpassed Audio Entertainment Part 2"

    I found this one better than the first as it explores a vital subject in English: how to communicate effectively. In my humble opinion it should be played to every schoolchild & migrant to our shores as it details how to clearly transmit ideas, without mispronunciation & sloppy use of language. This episode covers elocution, accents, voice control & delivery & outlines how to educate yourself in better speech patterns.

    P.S. See 'Fry's English Delight Complete Series 2' if you want to see the review of the full product.
