Hi,

The sentence below is from a book, and the character is having a lisp problem. Will you give me the point of the underlined part? I know the meaning of "plead" but I still don't get why it leads him to avoid an s sound.

I tried to avoid an s sound whenever possible. "Yes," became "correct," or a military "affirmative." "Please," became "with your kind permission," and questions were pleaded rather than asked.

Thank you,

M

'Ask' has an 's' sound' and 'plead' does not.

Ohh, that's what it meant.

Thank you,
