Lance" Subject: Re: Too in initial position I grew up on the opposite side of the country from Canada, and a co-editor I work with keeps editing out initial "as well" in my writing. But then I claim to use initial "too" too. These don't have the feel of regionalisms to me, but "armload" doesn't seem like a regionalisms either. DARE, however, has clear evidence of regional tendencies in the use of "armload" and "armful". (Jack Chambers speculated that initial "as well" might be a Canadianism.) DMLance
