    In vocal jazz, scat singing is vocal improvisation with wordless vocables, nonsense syllables or without words at all. In scat singing, the singer improvises melodies and rhythms using the voice as an instrument rather than a speaking medium.

    You're singing scat or you've just had a stroke. You're not talking to God either way.

    One may talk to G-d in any language, including otherwise meaningless nonsense. That is between the individual and G-d. Where it gets questionable is when one claims that the "speaking in tongues" represents G-d's own speech.

    Wow, the authority has spoken. God only understands English and Spanish and other languages only in existence. Anything else, God needs to be taught how to understand Tongues.

    You just said this, yet you deny it. God needs a lesson from you.

    That doesn't mean what you read into it. As usual.

    It means if Ian doesn't understand it, God can't either. God needs a lesson from him

    God said it all sounds like gibberish from up there anyway.

    It means you have no clue as usual. Whether that's deliberate or not is moot.
