Paul De Decker

Paul De Decker has over 20 years of experience in studying and teaching about dialects. He is Associate Professor in the Linguistics Department at Memorial University of Newfoundland. As a Fogo Island Research Fellow, Paul spent 1 month on the island capturing footage of the beautiful scenery and colourful accents of local Fogo Islanders for short documentary on Fogo's dialect. Paul has worked with the Royal Canadian Mounted Police as a forensic phonetician. He would love to coach actors in learning new dialects (and voices!) for the screen and looks forward to working with new crews on any project, in any role.
