Glitch in the matrix

Today Corin said — I believe for the first time — a fully formed word. All vowels inflected correctly, all consonants in place, no drawn-out syllables.

He was just jabbering in his usual idiosyncratic way (pul-aaaaaaay for play, "caaaaah" for car, "beh-reh" for berry) and then all of a sudden, clear as a bell, he says: "Sorry," like a proper gentleman, and then goes back to his own lyrical slurring.

It's as if Luna ambled over and said, "Cheerio, pip pip," and kept on walking.
