RE: Cammeron Girvin's << Query on appositive nouns >>.
Lyrics are characterized by repetition & redundancy, as he notes in Slavic
folk songs. An English example that sticks in my head is: << Well, come on
over, Baby, we got chicken in the barn -whose barn? what barn? MY barn! >>
starting at 0:51. Shake 'n Bake, Baby!
