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.
