About this app

Shakespeare Pronunciation is a complete AUDIO pronunciation dictionary for all the words in Shakespeare’s plays, including Latin words and phrases. In this easy to use app, each word is respelled and has a pronunciation guide which is simple to follow. The app also has sections on how the verse structure influences pronunciation, and suggestions for the accents and dialects that are used in the plays. This will prove to be an essential tool for actors, directors, teachers, students, and anyone who reads aloud the works of William Shakespeare. Extensive research by authors Louis Scheeder and Shane Ann Younts, Arts Professors at New York University’s Tisch School of the Arts, have produced an invaluable resource for education and performance. The app provides the pronunciation of more than 5,000 carefully recorded words including every character name, geographic location, mythological reference and any unfamiliar word. Words can be found using the advanced search function and the word history or by scrolling alphabetically. Act, scene, and individual line numbers from the Complete Pelican Edition are used. This is a must-have for anyone who studies, performs, and enjoys Shakespeare.

This app is incredible for any actor studying Shakespeare. It is super easy to use and helpful in both regular and scanned pronounciation. It has been created by a Shakespeare pro so expect nothing less than excellence!

This app lacks so many words that Shakespeare uses. Don't waist your money, I guarantee you will be disappointed. Also it is very difficult to navigate through. Get cup of Starbucks, money better spent.
