Throughout the book, the author subjects Shakespeare's language to rigorous examination, illuminating his extraordinary ability to bring his characters to life by a simple turn of phrase, a breath or even a pause. Block shows how we can only fully understand these characters, and the meaning of the plays, by speaking the words out loud. Drawing on characters from across all of Shakespeare's plays - and looking in detail at Macbeth, The Winter's Tale, Hamlet, The Merchant of Venice and Much Ado About Nothing Block covers everything the actor needs to know, including: the essential distinctions between prose, rhymed verse and unrhymed verse, and the different strategies to be used when speaking them; the difference between 'you' and 'thou'; Shakespeare's use of silence; and the vital importance of paying attention to Shakespeare's 'original' punctuation. Speaking the Speech is a book for actors and directors who want to improve their understanding of Shakespeare's language in order to speak it better. It is also a fascinating read for anyone who wants to deepen their appreciation of Shakespeare's language and the way it comes to life when spoken aloud.

"This volume contains the papers presented at the Textual Seminar of the Shakespeare Association of America, held in Montreal in 1986. The topic of the seminar was "Speech-Headings: The Bibliographer, the Editor, and the Critic." The papers concentrate on the speech prefixes in the plays of Shakespeare and his contemporaries, with particular attention to All's Well That Ends Well, Coriolanus, the second and third parts of Henry VI, and Romeo and Juliet. They also investigate plays from the Shakespeare Apocrypha and plays by later dramatists. They examine the evidence provided by these little designators as it applies to the nature of the text, the performance, the acting companies, and the audience." "The eight scholars whose contributions to the seminar are printed here come from England, Canada, and the United States. Experienced in bibliographical criticism and in editorial procedures and having published over the years important material on the assigned topic or on related topics, they brought to the seminar a unique depth of awareness and insight."--BOOK JACKET.Title Summary field provided by Blackwell North America, Inc.

Why does your mouth suddenly go dry, your throat tighten, your face get hot, and your knees buckle when you have to address a group of people? The old story goes that more people are afraid of public speaking than they are of death. So people at a funeral would prefer to be the person in the casket than the person delivering the eulogy! Shut up and speak means that you must stop dwelling on how difficult or frightening public speaking is. Shut up and speak means that you can't become a better public speaker simply by studying communications theory or relying on public speaking folk wisdom. This book gives you the guidance to "shut up" by tuning out all of the interference that doesn't help you become a better public speaker and to "speak" by throwing yourself whole-heartedly into speech-making.

Speaking Back

This book proposes an original policy framework for addressing hate speech. Gelber argues that a policy designed to provide support to affected groups and communities to enable them to speak back when hate speech occurs, is a more useful way of addressing the harms of hate speech than punitive measures. She suggests that “speaking back” allows the affected groups to contradict the messages contained in the words of the hate speakers, and to counteract the silencing, disempowering and marginalising effects of hate speech. Gelber’s argument uniquely synthesises the ideas of defending the importance of participating in speech, recognising the harms of hate speech and acknowledging that targeted groups may require assistance to respond.

Storyteller and ceremonialist Linda Sussman explores how to speak in a new way that is one that heals and transforms. She takes the epic story of the grail, as told by Wolfram von Eschenbach in "Parzival", as her guide. This tale weaves together Celtic, Oriental, Christian, Arthurian and alchemical sources. Linda Sussman sees "Parzival" as depicting the path of initiation to healing speech, to doing the truth in word and deed. First, she tells the story in a beautiful way, allowing the reader to reproduce within themselves the potent inner pictures of the text. Then she shows that it is not so much a path toward perfection, as the recovery of a right relationship to our imperfections. She shows, too that it is a path in which male and female aspects work together in the overcoming of evil.

Does your child seem to understand much more than he can say? Does he struggle to say words that other kids his age say effortlessly? If so, he may have childhood apraxia of speech (CAS), a neurological, motor-based speech disorder which is characterized by difficulty planning and organizing the speech movements necessary for intelligible speech. Fortunately, with early, intensive speech therapy, most children can have greatly improved or normal speech. Written by a mother whose daughter?s CAS is now resolved, Speaking of Apraxia, Second Edition, is extensively updated and jam-packed with reliable information and research, and covers: speech basics; getting a CAS diagnosis; treatment methods, coping and advocating; working with speech-language pathologists; early intervention and special education; creating a language-rich environment at home; preparing for school and leaving. New to this revised edition are discussions of helpful apps to stimulate and encourage speech; information on cutting-edge, evidence-based approaches to treating CAS; considerations related to using augmentative and alternative forms of communication; and updated, parent-friendly summaries of important research on CAS. Each chapter offers insightful anecdotes and tips, step-by-step approaches to address concerns, troubleshooting, ideas to augment speech therapy, and helpful resources, making it easy for readers to zero in on their child?s specific needs. Wherever you are on the journey with your child?s CAS, Speaking of Apraxia is your indispensable primer. It?s also a must-have resource for speech-language pathologists, occupational therapists, and other professionals in child development.
