I am using a quote from Victor Borge in tomorrow's presentation...which made me realize I had no idea who he was. So I looked him up...and he is hilarious! This is one of his sketches on "Phonetic Punctuation" There are two videos below where he explains it.
The first one is a bit rougher, but subtitled in English. The second one is cleaner without subtitles (and somehow I think not as funny).
What do you think, would it be easier if instead of using intonation when we spoke we had sounds that marked the place of punctuation?
