Date: Mon, 7 Apr 1997 20:06:12 -0400 From: "Dennis R. Preston" Subject: I'm sure word-watchers out there have it, but I was struck by the use of 'angst' as a verb (with the low-front vowel). This morning on Good Morning America, one of the anchors noted, after discussing some other trouble that you might run into this time of year, that 'You're alreading angsting over taxes.' Not me; I'm just out here Lautgesetzing, myself; keeping an eye on the Northern Cities Chain Shift. DInIs Dennis R.
