Date: Wed, 20 Dec 1995 17:08:58 EST From: Terry Lynn Irons Subject: Re: Gutter Tom, 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?)
