Subject: Re: Gutter


Thanks for the communication from Virginia. I believe, however, that

Joan has answered my query. I suspected it may be "lead trough,"

which will be a DARE entry, but I have never heard it before.

It occurs 13 times in the KY records I am working with, far more than

any variant other than "gutters." I am glad to hear it labelled as

chiefly S. Midland. The distribution across KY and into Ohio, when

I get it mapped, may provide some insights into boundary questions.

Of course, I won't hesitate to ask for help again when I need it.

Tell Viriginia "Merry Christmas" for me. (I've grown tired of being

careful to use the PC "Happy Holidays." Has anyone else notice it

increasingly replacing the former expression?)
