English After RP

Path Examinations has sponsored the production of the first edition of the book English After RP, written by Dr. Geoff Lindsey of University College London (UCL).

This book concisely describes ways in which today's standard British English speech differs from the upper-class accent of the last century, Received Pronunciation, which many now find old-fashioned or even comic. In doing so, it provides a much-needed update to the existing RP-based descriptions by which the sound system of British English is still known to many around the world.
