I'm a little concerned, because I have no trouble reading this at all...8-)

This reads: "How little people actually hear when they listen to speech.
People realize, when at a theatre or film in a language which people aren't
familiar with--at this time, what troubles people is that they cannot
understand what the actors are uttering; and that people cannot hear the
actors' words.  Splendid!"

I agree completely.  I've stopped watching movies in theatres because I
spend all my time asking my neighbors, "what did he say?  what?
what?"--easier to stay home and hit the re-play button 8-(.

Yes, one of these people has a very Russianish name and the style of the
text is decidedly early-part-of-the-century Russian sound poetry, or "zaum."
The websites listed on there are extremely fun, with the most beautiful
graphics I've seen online so far.  It's very international--with names that
are English, German, Scandinavian, Japanese, Russian, etc. etc.  Some things
about visual music and multi-media techniques, etc.  Some of the people out
of UCSD. I loved it.

I find this much easier and more fun to read than IPA, which is why I don't
teach dialiects--or teach IPA to my voice students 8-).
