 Iphone里的app. --- “教你说英音”

站长按:圣诞节来了。祝大家Merry Christmas和Happy New Year!! 新的一年,网站要有新的气象,新的想法;已有一周的时间没有更新了;今日我们来看最近火的很的iphone上面的一个手机程序(Application),熟悉的朋友们应该知道这个程序的原声,是之前站长有联系过的英国的Alison Pitman;

 

•   A British speech expert has developed an iPhone application which trains users how to speak Queen's English.
  一位英国的语音学家设计了一个Iphone应用程序,可以教使用者学系纯正的英式英语。


  The application instructs users to mimic 15 different vowel sounds and 16 consonant sounds to replicate received pronunciation.
  通过这个程序,使用者能跟读15个元音和16个辅音。


  The exercises are similar to those Professor Henry Higgins set for Eliza Doolittle, played by Audrey Hepburn, in the rags to riches film My Fair Lady.
  奥黛丽赫本主演的音乐剧《窈窕淑女》中,Henry Higgins教授就是用这样的方法来训练赫本饰演的卖花女的发音。


  The £2.99 application has been recorded by voiceover expert Alison Pitman, who has appeared on dozens of videos, training films and adverts.
  配音专家Alison Pitman为这个程序录制了音频。


  She has produced several voice training videos and features on mobile answerphone messages and automated text messages.
  她曾录过许多训练语音的视频教程和电话语音信箱的声音。


  Now the mum-of-one from Stapleton, Bristol, hopes the application will be downloaded by customers around the world hoping to replicate her clipped English accent.
  她现在是一个孩子的妈妈,她希望全球用户都能通过这个软件学到纯正的英式英语。


  'People hear the English accent and it conjures up images of sophistication and elegance.'
  “英式发音给人以优雅和高贵的感觉。”


  Mrs Pitman, who runs her business Voiceover Services from a studio at her home, says users should start notice the difference in every day speech.
Pitman夫人还说,人们应当注意日常用语中的语音语调差别。
