Glad to see Will land on his feet at Wheeling Jesuit. Typically a pretty decent program who had a rough one last season.

I find it interesting that his last remark was about recruiting future Cardinals. I didnít know that private schools recruited -wink wink

Was Will well regarded as a member of our coaching staff? I know nothing about him. I have read a lot about our former assistants. Apparently, one of the assistants was considered a total disaster, one was very good. Who's who?

Looks like they are in a heap of trouble, but I doubt WSJ becomes a branch of WVU, maybe a branch of Xavier! ;-)

I wrote them specifically for the Newark/N'eerk audience - one-syllable words.

Then the proper phrasing would have been - Was Will well thought of as a coach on our staff?

Will see, but color me skeptical on that outcome.

How about them folks in "Urntin"? Aren't you concerned about cumminikating with those 'thur folks?

Pretty sure the last coach left due to the money situation. A little birdie said...

Glad Will landed on his feet. Hope things work out well


never argue with idiots, they bring you down to their level and beat you with experience.

That's right, Doc, and for the record, when I was in Devon, close to Hampshire, where Portsmouth, England, is located, I was surprised to find out that that's the way the Brits pronounced it, too. Perhaps, BTC, who knows about all things Portsmouth, Ohio, can tell us if some of the first settlers there were from Portsmouth, England. If so, that might explain the similarities in pronunciation.

Living across the river from Kentucky I was struck by the fact that many considered their dialect to be ignorant and unintelligible. A researcher uncovered the fact that some who lived in the 1700 era were still using Elizabethan English and many of their hick words were actually Elizabethan with no contact from the outside world.

Portsmouth was founded by Henry Massie in 1803, became a city in 1815, and Massie named it after Portsmouth, NH. Not aware of any direct connection to Portsmouth England. One of the original homes in Portsmouth still stands and is in great shape, the 1810 House, I highly recommend checking it out.

Thanks, BTC, I'd knew you'd come through with Portsmouth history. That 1810 House sounds interesting, I'll try to check it out the next time I'm in that area. I think that Doc probably has the answer to the pronunciation question.

Doc, I think that you've hit on the explanation for the pronunciation. This reminds me of an experience that I had once when I was teaching at Marshall. I had gotten used to and understood all of the various regional dialects in West Virginia -- North Panhandle, Eastern Panhandle, Central, Southern Coal Fields, etc. However, one fall I had a new student who was from a very isolated community on the top of a mountain in the southern part of the state. I could hardly understand a word that he said. He used words that I had no idea what they meant. His syntax was like something I'd never heard before. After awhile I got to where I could usually understand the drift of what he said, but communicating with him was difficult. Strangely, though, he was a good writer and his writing was for the most part in standard English, with just a few archaic words every now and then. By his sophomore year, after being exposed to the urbane cultural of Huntington, he was speaking in a much more understandable -- by me -- manner. At some point, I did a little research on this background and discovered that the community that he came from had been researched by linguists who discovered that they spoke a very little evolved version of Elizabethan English. Who would have thunk it!

All that comes from settlement patterns, majority of early settlers into the mountain regions were separatist from England who rejected not only the Kings rule but that of colonial governments, they settled west of the foothills in violation of the Proclimation of 1763, and until WWII largely remained in their mountain communities with little interaction from other cultures and their dialect was slow to evolve.

Amazing stuff Ohio Cat Fan. English settlement patterns, along with the Scots and the Welsh is fascinating enough, then throw in German, Irish, Eastern European and Gullah and Cajun cultures and you could spend a lifetime travelling the country just listening to the remnants of those accents. Seeing that we are one day in front of the 4th of July, it is hard to fathom what a lot of those folks went through.

And I get a kick out of how your Licking County town, Pataskala, is pronounced by some.
