It has been wonderful listening to the variety of American conversation lately. I am referring to the inarticulate language used by the Sheriff in Alabama who can't say the words "vehicle" or "window" or "deputy" or any of a bunch of other words in form that reflects kindly on the good folks of his part of the world.
And then there was the discussion I seen bein' had 'tween a sports raporder and Kalin Lucas who is evidently a very talented guy. He's the MOST Valuable Player. Although I understood the questions posed, I understood none of the answers. Soon to be an honored graduate of a major American university, he may also become functional in English.
