LETTER TO THE EDITOR | Going Beyond Indulging

Regarding “The Impending Spondee Crisis,” by Frank Bialostzky (Audiology Today, Nov/Dec 2016, Vol 28, No 6)… .I’ve heard of indulging the younger generation, but this goes beyond the pale. At the very experience of hearing those remarkably outdated words like “sidewalk, hot dog, hardware,” I can only empathize with the young woman shown on page 54. Poor thing; I too would squint and crinkle my nose if faced with a similar assault on my sensibilities.
