Here's another sign I just noticed:
A predominantly black church in Athens has this in its outdoor sign
case: "Help us build a bridge over trouble waters." The pastor is an AAE
speaker and a professor of African American Studies at OU. Good example of
final t/d deletion reflected in spelling.
Come to think of it, the wording is right on (though the sign predated the
tsunami); we now know waters can be big trouble.
