Our Friday feature Lost & Found Sound™, a collaboration between NPR and independent producers The Kitchen Sisters™: Davia Nelson & Nikki Silva, and Jay Allison continues. This week, All Things Considered host Robert Siegel visits University of Pennsylvania linguist William Labov. Labov studies regional accents in the United States to see how they change over time and over class. In this segment, we focus on Labov's 40-year study of the various accents of New York City.
