    Review quote
    'Dyer makes what could be an austere and actorly subject come to life. As well as explaining the more techniqual aspects of how to produce a particular accent, she looks at its history and explains her environmental theory of accent formation.' Guardian (January 2008) 'Providing masterclasses in various dialects' The Stage (October 2007)
