It's my first post here, so, hello everyone, and I'm already starting with a question, aimed particularly as native speakers.
Is Brick's speech, especially his inner monologues, recognisable to you as a specific dialect? I read it, naturally, as lower class (and probably drug-induced), but to me it also sounds (well, looks, or reads) like the stereotypical AAVE (African American Vernacular English). Is the native reaction the same? I'd be very grateful for answers.
And yes, I am asking this because I'm writing a thing on translation of Thud!, so please bear with me.
