Subject: Help with frontierish language . .

How about this, you Westerners? Please reply directly to the questioner.
Your general remarks about the subject might be of interest to ADS-L too.
Thanks - Allan Metcalf


..I'm looking for a specialist in the colloquial language of the
Arizona territory circa 1880-1900 to proofread a screenplay.. if not
an expert, maybe a student could take on this, just to help me to
avoid any modern expressions and preserve the authentic language of
the time, (english is not my native language). There is relatively
little dialog, so it shouldn't take more than an hour or so. I
would appreciate if you could mail this to the ADS' student list (if
there is such a list, that is).
