nEd Talks: Evolution of Language in Kansas by Mary Kohn, Humanities Kansas Speaker

Saturday, July 13th from 2:00 PM to 3:00 PM: Admission is FREE! 

“We’ve all heard that newscasters are trained to speak with a Midwest accent—
the so-called “accent from nowhere.” In fact, language reflects people, history,
and community. It is intimately tied to our immigrant past, a foundation that,
surprisingly, is always changing. This talk will examine the ways language has
changed in Kansas over the past hundred years through the examination of
archival and contemporary oral history.”
