Will the talk be available on the Internet a few days later for foreigners like me to access it at their own convenience?

Probably.

Even though the topic is the Rebel-Yankee Test, I wonder if we'll get a chance to hear some Russian spoken with a Southern drawl. :wink:

HEY! Try listening on the 'Net in real time!

www.npr.org

Click on the "Program Stream" link in the left-hand column. It gives you the choice of Real Audio or Windows Media Player.

My wife taught ESL to Hispanic kids in Eastern Oregon during the '90s. My wife is a native Tennessean with a strong southern accent.
I believe some years in the future there will be folks studying the phenomenon of southern accented English speaking Hispanics in the Pacific Northwest! "Howdy, ma name is Ju wan, y'all."
Will be tuned in for the good Doctor.

I tried that, but I got this message:

Não é possível executar o arquivo porque não há suporte para o protocolo especificado. Se você digitou uma URL na caixa de diálogo Abrir URL, tente abrir o arquivo usando um protocolo de transporte diferente (por exemplo, "http:" ou "rtsp:").

Now use your magical wand for a translation. :)

Just a guess here, but would the short translation be "It doesn't work"?

alphaDictionary Interview on NPR

Postby Dr. Goodword » Fri Jun 16, 2006 11:11 pm

Yes, the broadcast will be available on the website. In fact, it would seem that the page it will be linked to will contain a broadened report on the website. I think the audio files are put up the day after the broadcast. Just click the Morning Edition link on the NPR.org website or the link we will surely have on the Rebel-Yankee page of our website.

[wave wand]
It is not possible to execute the archive because it does not have support for the specified protocol. If you it typed a URL in the box of dialogue To open URL, tries to open the archive using a protocol of different transport (for example, "HTTP:" or "rtsp:").
[/wave wand]

Perhaps you browser needs the protocol in addition to the URL?

Protocol to me is what diplomats and other fancy people have to stick to in ceremonies. Is that it?

In this case, it's number three:

Quick definitions (protocol)


noun: code of correct conduct (Example: "Safety protocols")
noun: forms of ceremony and etiquette observed by diplomats and heads of state
noun: (computer science) rules determining the format and transmission of data


"http://" tells your browser to use the hypertext transport protocol.

"ftp://" tells your browser to use the file transfer protocol

I'm sorry, dude, but that still doesn't mean anything to me.

BD, when were you getting the error message?

Although you didn't specifically state this, I bet you were getting the error when you clicked the button Image, and that you simply clicked the first link to listen to the show, which is the Real Player audio link.

Try this link instead, which streams through Windows Media Player:

Morning Edition for Monday, June 19

-Tim

[Edit: Of course, now that I've posted the link, I see that it is for a specific story that is not Dr GW's... I will update when that is available.]

That one doesn't work, either, Tim.

I'm sure one of you nice people will give me a summary of the doc's interview, though.
