Spoken by a random narrator on a true-crime show on the Justice Network.
First time that I've heard "shon" for "shone" since I was last in StL,
ca.1962. I've also heard "liloc" for "lilac" once, spoken by a random
face-in-the-crowd character on some TV show. Unfortunately, there's no way
to know where these speakers learned their English.since leaving The Lou.
