You know, just from the title, what I’m writing about. Recently, it was reported that DC Metro Drivers are getting speech lessons on how to properly say L’Enfant Plaza and Grosvenor. Personally, I think the problem is more with the speaker systems in the stations than the ones in the cars, but the point is well taken: can you understand what the hell they’re saying when you jolt awake on the train three stops after your usual destination?
Usually not, but elocution’s not going to help in that situation.
