1. I have been working through the chief and most currently valued examples of scholarly work on Elizabethan pronunciation. As I read the subject, there aren't many useful books on the subject, and good audio-cassettes, the most obvious form of record for such an aural matter, are non-existent. I attach, with a few comments about their varying contexts, authors' own voices, and values, a list of the most scholarly books.
