Anton and Bruce,
No need to be unAmerican. Mort Benson has put out at least
one, and I think possibly several, Combinatory Dictionaries with a
publishing co. called BBI, I think. I believe they're good old
red-meat-and-jello American English-oriented (just to work in the
now-obligatory food reference)...
I suppose if he hadn't I could say "One needs put out".
Does that sound acceptable to "needs+p.p." users? it doesn't to me,
but then I'm not one...
