Subject: Dog Language
Anybody out there ever heard of something called Dog Language?
As I understand it, vowels are pronounced in ordinary fashion, and
consonants are followed by certain agreed-upon sounds. "Thomas," for
example, would be something like Tu has o ma suh.
The only person I know who uses it learned it from his grandmother,
and she once told him that slaves used Dog Language to keep their masters
from understanding them as they talked among themselves.
