About this Item

179 pages. "With all the problems of depicting a variety of sounds with written works which may themselves sound different in different regions, it is still fun to consider the accent variations in our language. Even more important, it is time we accepted the wide variety of sounds in our language as both O.K. and inevitable in the evolution of a living language." FINE SOFTCOVER, signed by the author. Size: 8vo - over 7¾" - 9¾" tall. Bookseller Inventory # 017741
