True, but Texas doesn't have anywhere near the kind of dialect
diversity like you would see in, say, Virginia.

I remember using this once in our undergrad sociolinguistics

Must think it exceedingly odd *I* am always about in the Quad
If he finds that this tree And that's why the tree
continues to be will continue to be

Yours faithfully, God."
