Syntactic Arrangement...

How 'bout I was on my way home from work the other day, cruisin along & listening to the radio...yes, radio does still exist.

Anywho...an ad came on for that new language learning system, "RosettaStone". The announcer praised the software as being, "...the fastest, most easiest way to learn a new language."

I wonder if they have a program for "ENGLISH?"

On the same note, this morning on Channel 11, meteorologist, Scott Harbaugh, remarked on the fog surrounding the city as, "...so thick, you can't even barely see."

What my ears immediately heard was, "can't heretofore, not noticeably see."

I don't know about all of you, but this really hits home. While I realize that understanding that our education system involves diverse learning styles isn't a cure-all, I also realize that it will at least begin the process of making our students better self-learners.

What do you think?
