15974RE: [TolkienDiscussions] Re: The Professor Speaks
- Sep 4, 2005Do you know where it came from? I found it in one of those Internet lists
which didn't say in detail.
That's a low blow...in pompous English vernacular...
I have seen that quote before though. Where I come from (Greater
Providence, Rhode Island), the accent is mainly due to southern
European immigrants twist on English. Down south (I was just in
Savannah, GA because my girlfriend moved there to begin graduate
school) the accent it something entirely different.
How one speaks is something I have always found to be virtually
irrelevant, given that grammer is correct - or at least not
