While listening to a CD of flamenco singing on the car stereo.
Me: Did he just say 'La Vida Loca?'
Her: It's hard to tell, they slur their words in this kind of singing.
Me: Originally that was due to drunkenness, but now it's just part of the "style."
Her (unsure if I'm joking): No, I mean in this dialect of Spanish, they slur their words more.
Me: Originally that was due to drunkenness, but now it's considered an "official dialect."
