... when you're glad you're from Yorkshire (England) because the Yorkshire dialect uses
glottal stops, which will stand you in good stead for your future study of Georgian.

instead of "the" :)

When I was in law school, I had a long commute, about 30 to 45 minutes. I used to pay my

...when you decide that your "future study" of Georgian just cannot wait and you *have*
to study it alongside Czech, French and the flirtations with Icelandic.
