Lance" 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.
