- Well, i don't know how much this is worth, but in one of the Narnia books by C. S. Lewis, people sneaking through the forest near enemies replace all their [s] sounds with [T] sounds because [T] is a softer sound less likely to be heard by the bad guys. I distinctly remember the phrase "thee better" for "see better". -Stephen (Steg) "cup half full, cup half empty - show me the f---ing cup!" ~ "no messiah" by lazy i
