Author Visit: Edward Mc Clelland says
Find out what Midwesterners say as well as how and why they say it. In this book on Midwestern speech and slang. McClelland examines the causes of the Northern Cities Vowel Shift, one of the most significant changes in English pronunciation in a thousand years. It explains why the accents in Fargo miss the nasality that’s a hallmark of Minnesota speech, and why Chicagoans talk more like people from Buffalo than their next-door neighbors in Wisconsin.
