I'm also quite fond of SpecGram's tranlation of “Ain’t nothin’ in the middle of the road but yellow stripes and dead armadillos” into “Ain’t nothing in the middle of the mouth but schwas and dead languages."

I think there's a conspiracy of Bens in the language world: Yagoda, Schott, Zimmer, and Mr. Trawick-Smith above me here. Coincidence?

P.S. Thanks for the Lionel Shriver tip. I loved "The Post-Birthday World."

@Jessica: Then of course there's the ur-Ben, Benjamin Whorf.
