This probably isn't the right network to ask, but I'm sure someone will have an answer. A couple of friends of mine that are amature writers spell the word(s) meaning "not anyone" as , which my mind pronounces /nun/ every time I come across it. I learned that it was supposed to be spelled . Although this is dealing with the written lg and not dialects, per se, it still is a choice of linguistic expression. So, is it supposed to be spelled or ? Any prescriptive answers out there? --Aaron Drews --Georgetown University --SLL '96
