    Default All of it, folks

    UsingEnglish friends, in casual speech, when you link all of it, does the /L/ become a "clear L"?

    I've been saying it over and over while trying to perceive the position of my tongue. At least in my case the answer is yes.

    I'm not a teacher, but I write for a living. Please don't ask me about 2nd conditionals, but I'm a safe bet for what reads well in (American) English.

    from The City Your poems are like a dark city centre. Your novel, your stories, your journals, your letters, are suburbs Of this big city. The hotels are lit like office blocks all night With scholars, priests, pilgrims. It's at night Sometimes I drive through. I just find Myself driving through, going slow, simply Roaming in my own darkness, pondering What you did. Nearly always I glimpse you - at some crossing, Staring upwards, lost, sixty year old.
