KENTUCKY GLUG WAGE Educates Many May Correct Their English By Glug Mis takes. The Glug family at the American Theater Friday night should be a guide to those who say "he don't" "I have went" and where are you at?" These are incorrect and people often make such mistakes without real izing them. Miss Rosa Sippel recited the following, the parts that are incor rect are in quotations: The Glugs do not say I did it, 'I done it," is their way. And afterwards not I have done, but ''I have did," they say. A Glug will not say, I have come, but always "I have came." And rather than say, came home, say "I come home from the game." The verb, to go, they slaughter so as if by vile consent, The Glugs all say when they're away I tell you, "I have went." When they come home tl.eir mother say, "Now haiut you had no fun?' The Glugs reply with down cast eye, "No maw we haint had none " The Glugs use "yet" uncouthly, when a lesson we must get, Instead of, have you got it? they say, "Did you get it yet?" Instead of Have you been there yet? a Glug will not forget To put the tense quite wrong and say, "O, did you go there yet?" Once in a game of bill a Glug said what we'll not forget, He kept the score, and with a roar, said, "What is your name yet?" Once when their father had been ill I asked a Glug boy how His parent was, and he replied, "He's almost better now." Notice.
