Schlaumeiernde Sprachmuster

“Cleverizing speech patterns.”

During the dot com bubble, U.S. Americans seemed to think peppering your speech with unnecessary pauses indicated you were smarter, not the opposite. Perhaps this idea was spread by television sit coms, because that’s where people seemed to be getting a lot of their information.

In the subsequent George W. Bush administration, a new package of tics signalling expertise became appreciated in the form of the delivery style used by Vice President Dick Cheney.

Die Nachrichtenfrage

“The news question.” Where do you get your news? What reliable news selecters and sharers have you found? What conduits bring you your news?
