Mare Kin is a humorous look at the
way we sound. Phonetic spellings offer laughs and insights into regional
accents and customs. For example, no one says "for" unless the word is
last in a sentence or pronounced by itself. It is "fir" when Mare Kins
talk: "Wait fir me." And, "Whad ja pay fir that?" The book includes
chapters on language learning, history, and change, amusingly told with
many examples to illustrate.
Author Dana Wall has given numerous luncheon
and banquet programs and is available in the Phoenix area for humorous,
informative presentations about our Mare Kin accents.
