Subject: Re: Tom Murray's example "this needs washed"
Gail's note prompts me to recall a strange pronunciation my stepmother, whose
family came from Kentucky originally (to Indiana), gave to the kitchen item
where dishes are washed. She consistently called it the "zinc" - which always
struck me as odd, but I believe I have heard it a few other times away from
Indiana (usually in a southerly direction). How widespread is that?
