I’m tasked with listening to this speaker and possibly writing ar report about it. She has a very annoying speech pattern that is making it exceedingly difficlt for me to understand and comprehend what she’s saying.
First, she talks too fast. I could ordinarily deal with that except for the fact that her alveolar approximants (Rs and Ls) are all fucked up.
She’s got the Elmer Fudd Rs … Wealization copywite owganization
But it’s worse than that because she’s also got the swallowed “dark Ls”
As a result half of her words are swawwowed, and I’m experiencing several seconds of delay in comprehending much of her speech.
At least Tom Brokaw talks slowly enough that it doesn’t significantly interfere with comprehension.
