    It occurs to me that we would have understood the expression more quickly if were "Where? Where?" instead of "Where! Where!"
    I'm not a teacher. I speak American English. I've tutored writing at the University of Southern Maine and have done a good deal of copy editing and writing, occasionally for publication.
