  •  Actually, I prefer the term "accent acquisition" (4+ / 0-)

    for the reason you pointed out -- what I'm really helping people to do is learn an American accent, not 'reduce' anything, just as when I use my methods on myself to improve my Russian pronunciation, I'm trying to acquire a Russian accent. But 'accent reduction' is such a common term, I often use it just for ease of communication.
