So to be clear, I'm unsure what this new phenomenon of English language communication means for the future, but I certainly wish to be in the front runners if it is beneficial in debate.
So thankfully vocal fry can't be sufficiently represented in text.

When I'm reading through posts here at ATS, I'm so familiar with certain people that for me they actually have a voice that I can recognize and hear in my head. Maybe our brains need a kind of voice in order for language to work
Love this stuff
(the voice is rarely flattering, but since its in my head, and there is so much extra space, I feel like it's a "safe space".)
So I'm the same when I imagine a certain Brit member shouting self righteous rants in the style of Brian Blessed.
So sorry, but you'll have to Google it, I so can't be arsed.
