I've always assumed that this is Paarfi's style, plain and simple. Well,
and added to the fact that it's VERY different from Vlad's style and the
way most of the Jhereg talk. If you compare Paarfi's dialogues with
the way Morrolan, Aliera, Sethra, and Lady Teldra speak in the Vlad
novels, I think you'll find them a lot closer.
