Spoken language is all about communication. There’s too much mumbling going on these days. Too much fast-talking. Too much abbreviated talk. Too much misuse and too much abuse.
Too many people walking around who can’t communicate and whose grammar and phonetics are . . . alright, I’ll say it . . . incorrect. Now, don’t get me wrong: I’m a baby boomer, a product of the ‘60s. So I appreciate a little hip talk, a little slang. I appreciate Woodstock … and Joe Cocker.

And thank heavens for captioned videos!
Well . . . . Maybe it was the mud. But what did he say?
