To compliment the intellectual palaver of this board, we need background music. Perhaps Anu could ad streaming audio of stately classical music, coupling Bach and Mozart with Webster.

Hmm. . .or I could just turn on the radio. . .

You could just turn the volume in your speakers all the way down, or just plain off if you don't want to hear it. This is idle talk anyway because it probably won't happen.

with that marvellous name you ought to be the one to supply some cool grammatical music apposite to the discussion of words.
minimalist jazz might be good, since the original topic seems to branch out slowly into discussions of life here.

I'd prefer you turn on the radio! Not that I have anything against music, I just prefer download speed!

In order to suit this context, I recommend Rod Piazza & The Mighty Flyers'album "Alphabet Blues" or perhaps Elvis Presley singing "Words" or the old Otis Redding album "Dictionary of Soul."

Greetings, Pa Stevie!

There are times when "The Ying Tong Song", "I'm walking backwards for Christmas", or any of the other songs in that collection, would be more appropriate.

An orthographic representation of such an opus would hardly do justice to the strange and haunting cadences of its primeval melody, Jim.

Jim? You're not glaswegian are you? I have never in my entire life been called "Jim", even though James is my middle name, so I wondered if its use here was as a contraction of the generic glaswegian "Jimmy."
