Q: Do you use IPA (International Phonetic Alphabet) as part of your instruction?
A: Yes. Each collection comes with a detailed instructional booklet that provides the relevant IPA substitutions for each dialect. While knowledge of IPA will certainly aid you in your dialect work, it is not a prerequisite for using Gillian Lane-Plescia's dialect materials. The accompanying booklet provides an explanation of the necessary vowel and consonant substitutions that can be easily understood without knowledge of IPA.

Q: Do you accept other forms of payment besides PayPal?
A: While PayPal is the preferred method of payment, the Dialect Resource will accept personal checks sent via US mail. However, such an arrangement must be agreed upon in advance. To request payment by check, use the CONTACT FORM below to contact Gillian for more information. Please note that, in such instances, your order will not be mailed until payment has been received.

Q: I just ordered a digital download. Where is it?

A: Shortly after completing your purchase, you will receive an emailed invoice. The secure link for your digital download is contained in your invoice (toward the bottom of the invoice). Please note that you can only download from this link 3 times, after which it will expire. If you encounter issues with your download, please email Gillian at gillian@dialectresource.com
