Book summary

Spoken language is subject to constant change and the influence of other speakers. This book takes in a survey of literature available on the topic of accent attrition and merging, and goes on to show that accent shift happens across the world and in all social settings, finally taking in an analysis of prehistoric European proto-language with the focus on a proposed shared Celtic-Germanic accent system.
