text/plain (35 lines)

I'm sure there are others who can elaborate on this, but I believe the 
English "slang" is used to represent the "German" slang in the Rosenkavalier text.   
For example, one slang is used for Annina and Valzacchi to represent their 
Italian accents that would be heard in their pronunciation of German; and 
another slang is used to represent the different dialects of people from different 
classes.   I'm not sure if I said that correctly, hence my first sentence that 
I'm sure there are others who can elaborate on this.   I also remember being 
told some of the German text being sung needed to be accented or pronounced 
differently to respect the Austrian vs. the German pronunciation of words.

Hope this helps a bit.
