Subject: Re: Tom Murray's example "this needs washed"
Growing up in mid Indiana in the 50's and 60's, I had never heard the term
until my (ex)husband's mother, from southern Indiana, used it with all
domestic tasks. My ex used it, too, but only for domestic stuff, e.g.,
the baby needs changed, the dishes need washed.
