Interesting how one thing, one word, can be beautiful, lyrically exciting, frustratingly incomprehensible, and down-right insulting, but never all at once.
A man can have a slur in his voice, which makes people ask him to repeat for clarity and question his level of sobriety, or sanity.
A singer can slur the notes being sung to make the music more playful and energetic.
A person – or more likely, a walking stereotype her/himself – can string a sentence of slurs together and hurl it at any unsuspecting passerby.
One word, three responses.
The difference is all in the hearing.
Yet, add two letters: ry
and you get a pulverized mush.
A slurry of words or emotions or formerly-solid material (a person slurred to the point of subjugation)
