     PRESENTER;I have with me tonight Anne Elk.  Mrs. Anne Elk.
     MISS ELK;Miss
     PRESENTER;You have a new theory about the Brontosaurus.
     MISS ELK;Can I say here Chris for one moment that I have a new theory 
     about the Brontosaurus.
     PRESENTER;Exactly.  What is it?
     MISS ELK;Where?
     PRESENTER;No, no your new theory.
     MISS ELK;Oh, what is my new theory?
     MISS ELK;Oh what is my theory that it is.  Well Chris you may ask me 
     what is my theory.
     PRESENTER;I >am< asking
     MISS ELK;Good for you.  My word yes.  Well Chris, what it is that it 
     is-this theory of mine.  Well this is what it is-my theory that I 
     have, that is to say, which is mine, is mine.
     PRESENTER;Yes, I know it's yours, what is it?
     MISS ELK;Where?  Oh, my theory?  This is it.  (clears throat at great 
     length) This is how it goes.  The next thing I'm going to say is my 
     theory.  Ready?
     MISS ELK;My Theory, by A. Elk. brackets Miss, brackets.  This theory 
     goes as follows and begins now.   All brontosauruses are thin at one 
     end, much much thicker in the middle and then thin again at the far 
     end.  That is my theory, it is mine, and belongs to me and I own it, 
     and what it is too.
     PRESENTER;That's >it<, is it?
     MISS ELK;Spot on, Chris.
     PRESENTER;Well, er this theory of yours appears to have hit the nail 
     on the head.
     MISS ELK;And it's mine.
