    Bush Speak

    Dear Teachers,

    In Japanese when we say someone is singing his tune, it means that he is using his distinctive style of speech or that he is presenting his usual argument. I am looking for the English equivalent of that and I remembered a there was a book called "Bush Speak." I have never seen or heard the word "speak" used as a noun anywhere else but would this be the equivalent of someone singing his tune?

    Thank you.
