'utterly and completely ignorant of the subject matter?'

Speaking for myself only, the answer is YES!

Which is why we're waiting for you to pronounce in language we can understand.


But you didn't wait:
Gibb presents a very persuasive case that chantying evolved directly from African-American activities.

Henry Dana and the Italians both did 'proto-chanties' or whatever on the 19th century Amercian west coast. The Italian word for (proto)chanty is older than Italian dictionaries.

What is it you need explained and why me?
