Subject: Re: Risin' = boil (n.)
I can offer only a family usage citation for 'risin'' used for 'boil'.
I've heard it so often that I assumed it hadn't fully entered archailand.
I think I'd use it with family members of my generation and uncles/aunts,
and maybe with younger members of the extended family, but it has enough
of an archaism flavor that I doubt I'd use it with people I don't know well
unless they seem to have a rural background.
