I’ve made the comment that to learn dialog you should study the stand up comedians. Well, the humorists also are great users of the language. Roy Blunt, Jr. was on the Bob Edwards Weekend show a few weekends ago. I suggest you download and listen to it (free podcast). Bob also interviews a great many writers and song writers.

Best comments were when Bob asked Roy about why he was so interested in the language to write a book about it called Alphabet Juice. Roy replied he had been earning a living using his “over the counter license” to use the English language for his livelihood since he was 14.

I need to remember that phrase.

Edit Nathan over at the Polybloggimous posted a link to a vocabulary test. Scores are posted over at Nathan’s place.
