Wrinkles Preference or Snobbish? (131* d) RE: Preference or Snobbish? 06 Nov 08


The point isn't the spelling or the pronunciation, it's the meaning.

I agree wholeheartedly.

My point, which seems to have got lost, is that when a song contains a dialect word one should repeat it exactly as it was originally said; any attempt to "de-accent" or "translate", unless one is fluent in that dialect, almost always results in inaccurate meaning being foisted on the original lyrics.
