There’s another field that shouting doesn’t fit LH’s limited scope of the word. But, perhaps he’s not an American Blues fan?
I think you’re missing my point. I am in fact a blues fan (no reason to capitalize it) and I am familiar with the various specialized uses of “shout”; what I said, however, was:
“shout” is just as inappropriate as “song” if you’re going to get that picky.
Emphasis added. Yes, “shout” can be interpreted in a way that makes it fit, but so can “song.” I don’t understand why Dave is being picky about one but not the other, and why he says “the context is distinctly that of an Alpine shout, not a song.”
