People Speaking – Allocution

— “By ‘allocution’ I mean ‘an appeal’, as opposed to ‘response’. German linguists that researched it, assumed that when someone asks, the listener waits for him to finish, then responds. It’s a serious problem, don’t laugh. My son was in American kindergarten for two years and he learnt to speak after his peer finishes and now he’s back in Israel and he’s miserable, just miserable.”
