Date: Thu, 28 Aug 1997 13:26:08 -0500 From: "Emerson, Jessie J" Subject: three-track road I recently read a novel set in modern South Georgia that mentioned a three-track (or -trail or -rut, I can't remember exactly) road. The character talked about it as a part of South Georgia dialect, but raised the question "Why is it three? There are two ruts that tires make and a grass track in the middle. Why not two?" Two questions: Is this in fact part of the dialect of South Georgia (and possibly other areas), and why is it three instead of two? Thanks!
