Description

Pronunciation is integral to communication, and is tailored to meet the demands of the two main forces behind language: intelligibility and identity. Equipping his readers with knowledge of phonetics, linguistics and physiology – with examples ranging from Eliza Doolittle to Winston Churchill – David Crystal explores the origins of regional accents, how they are influenced by class and education, and how their peculiarities have changed over time.
