These words will not disappear for at least four years since they are part
of a language widely spoken in corporate boardrooms and within the U.S.
Military. I am speaking, of course, of Bushonics.

"These people are greatly misunderestimated," says University of Texas
linguistics professor James Bundy, himself a Bushonics speaker. "They're not
lacking in intelligence facilities by any stretch of the mind. They just
have a differing way of speechifying."
