Drag chains, but not push chains…

Continuing the theme of numerous ways of looking at vowel shifts, this week, I present the views of Robert D King on the subject, via his 1969 Glossa article “Push Chains and Drag Chains.” Among the interesting points King discusses are his view that drag chains, but not push chains, exist. (Since Glossa is no longer in print, I have included an actual pdf of the article with this posting.)
