In order to continue getting-by in America, we may need to learn the NEW English dialect! Practice by reading the following conversation until you are able to understand the term "TENJOOBERRYMUDS."

The following is a telephone exchange between you (as a hotel guest) and room-service somewhere in the USA:

Room Service: "Morrin. Roon sirb ees."

Guest: "Sorry, I thought I dialed room-service."

Room Service: " Rye. Roon sirbees…morrin! Joowish to oddor sunteen???"
