Thanks for reading.
My own language usage is such a mixed bag that, years ago when I wrote a
paper on Rhapsody in Blue for a music appreciation class, because
there was such a contrast of formal and informal phraseology the professor
wondered to me whether I was using quotes but failing to put quotation marks
and citations on them. (I described that rest in the middle of the second
piano solo in the Bernstein recording as lasting "exactly a bar and a deep
breath".) (Well, it does.) You probably can get what I mean from reading
AKOTAS dialog. I'm not any good at giving my characters "voices" that
are different from mine, let alone from each others'. I try to remember to
give fairy tale- and space- Lancelot and his family syntax as if they were
speaking with a French accent but I don't always.
