The Sonic Society

Showcasing the very best in new Audio Drama

Bring Back the Trans-Atlantic!

hepburnIf you’re a fan of the fast-paced, hard-clipped, almost-English accents of the 20’s and 30’s, you’ll remember it as Trans-Atlantic or Mid-Atlantic accent. Especially effective for enunciating in Audio Drama, it has a kind of machine gun speed comedic style which is sadly missing. While many people can do a great parody of the Trans-Atlantic, superior usage of it, like Katherine Hepburn in Bringing Up Baby, has long been lost (kind of like our wonderful audio adaptation!). We at the Society think it’s about time to bring it back. Check out Brainstuff‘s little video on the accent, and start practicing, see!
