Subject: Re: eye dialect
As Don points out, we have to know the dialect of the speaker. But I think
the "whut" spelling has become pretty universal in dialect writing,
regardless of whatever specific region is being represented.
(For the record, I was looking at an "Amos n Andy" script reporduced in
the recent Free Press book on that show.)
