I didn't watch or listen to the president's press conference yesterday (I'm not a masochist!). But late last night I heard a commentator on CNBC talking about it. He noted that, at one particularly tense moment, Bush lost his infamous emulation of TexSpeak and reverted to his native New England dialect. I wonder what details the commentator was observing, phonologically speaking?
