Sound change by Charles Hockett

No, it’s not a new perfume. It is, however, an article written by Hockett in 1965 that is another true classic. This time, from Language, and therefore, linked through JStor rather than directly linked as a pdf.

Hockett, Charles. 1965. Sound change. Language, 41.2:185-204.
