Kretzschmar, Jr." Subject: Re: Diversity of accents While the newspaper article may not be a joke, the media are still capable of noticing dialect differences: WSB, the 50,000W Atlanta AM station, interviewed me during the playoffs so that I could explain the funny accents up in Philadelphia. (Needless to say, I found irony in the request on *many* counts). I didn't hear what WSB edited out of the phone interview, but it was scheduled to play the morning of game 5. ****************************************************************************** Bill Kretzschmar Phone: 706-542-2246 Dept. of English FAX: 706-542-2181 University of Georgia Internet: billk[AT SYMBOL GOES HERE] Athens, GA 30602-6205 Bitnet: wakjengl[AT SYMBOL GOES HERE]uga
