How do you feel Kate's accent developed throughout the story? Was her accent - or lack thereof - symbolic to you?

Kate’s final observation of herself, after she has broken up with Olivier and left the Schell family having returned to her own, is that she is "no longer accent-free to the point of invisibility" (p. 337). How do you feel her accent developed throughout the story? Was her accent - or lack thereof - symbolic to you?
