I haven't seen the film yet, but you might want to look at the novel,
which I just finished. Forrest uses invariant "be" quite frequently.
I didn't think this a common feature of white Alabamans of my generation
(I am not an Alabaman, but I grew up when Forrest did), though I should
chexck Crawford Feagin's book before I shoot off my electyroinic mouth again.
