Abstract:

TALKING PROPER is a history of the rise and fall of the English accent
as a badge of cultural, social, and class identity. Lynda Mugglestone
traces the origins of the phenomenon in late eighteenth-century
London, follows its history through the nineteenth and twentieth
centuries, and charts its downfall during the era of New Labor. This
is a witty, readable account of a fascinating subject, liberally
spiced with quotations from English speech and writing over the past
250 years.

"A meticulously researched account of the history of accent as a
social symbol."--David Crystal, Times Higher Education
Supplement

"Lynda Mugglestone's Talking Proper is written proper, happy to say,
and can be understood even by the laity."--Times Literary
Supplement
