One Sentence. Many Styles.

"...No artist will better compress speech to conciseness than he who has skill to enrich the same with as varied an ornamentation as possible."
-The Copia, Desiderius Erasmus Roterodamus.

Take a sentence.  Like Erasmus did.  How many different ways can you say that sentence?

A simple example : How are you?

What's up?
What's new?
How are things?
Alright mate?
How's it hanging?
What's going down?
What's happening?
How's it going?
