GLOSSARY

Joseph's speech may give you some problems at first, since he
uses dialect a lot, and since the words are written phonetically
to give you an idea of his accent. Read a few sentences out
loud, and you'll catch on. Words with a long e are usually
given a long a instead. Hence, clane for "clean," and stale for
"steal." "Ow" is usually ah; "down" becomes dahn; "how," hah;
"doubt," daht. A long i often becomes a long e. "Night" and
"sight" are neeght and seeght. "Die" is dee.

Here are some words you'll get used to quickly.
