Description

David Crystal shows how our feelings about pronunciation today have their origins in the way our Victorian predecessors thought about the subject, as revealed in the pages of the satirical magazine, 'Punch'. Richly illustrated, this is a fascinating and highly entertaining insight into our ongoing amusement and prejudice at how we speak.
