In the 1960s/early 1970s, I read a lot of science fiction short stories and anthologies from Ray Bradbury, Arthur C. Clarke, and Isaac Asimov. One of the stories was about an interview for an order of monks who were the keepers of the English language.
At one point, a monk asks an applicant a question and the applicant's reply is "Howz?" which sort of became a joke in my family.
I'm trying to track down this story to give as a gift. Does anyone know the name of it?
