Black Bird, Black Bird

It's an old linguistic exercise to have students pronounce "black BIRD" and "BLACK bird" in order to illustrate the role of vocal stress in producing meaning. I've been doing a bit of reading (again) on one of my favorite black BIRDs, the American Crow. Well, really, I've been reading about Fish Crows, Northwestern Crows, and Tamaulipas Crows to find out more about species differences and stuff.



But now I've gotta write it up. Caw!
