Dear Dennis (and other interested parties),
There is some information in LAMSAS on 'wake up', both the transitive and
intransitive forms. This item was not investigated by Lowman (who did
most of the interviews), but only in fieldwork by McDavid and students in
South Carolina, Georgia, and N. Florida. We can send copies of the
approximately 25 pages of list manuscripts, if you'd like, for ten cents
per page plus postage. Unfortunately, these two files have not yet made
it into our computer database. It's great that you now have all the
information you need to make sense of informant numbers, etc. in the
Handbook. Since I was away for awhile, you gave me my first opportunity
to pull that tome off the shelf and look something up in it! Felt great!
The question for 'he wakes up' includes several "he wake up"s, a "waken
up", "wakens", "awakes", but I don't notice any a-prefixing. The file
for "wake him up" has various realizations of the verb, plus synonyms
"disturb him", "rouse him" and "arouse him" (!).
You can send me a request for copies via e-mail to:

I hope it gets through this time.
