Subject: Re: chintsy
I checked with a few folks around the office today. One from West Va.
natively knew only chinchy ; another from NJ (also an "on line" speaker)
uses chinchy for people, chintzy for things (confirming an earlier
self-report by a New Englander: Virginia Clark, what do your students say?);
a third, from California, somewhat uncertainly recognized chinchy for things
and chintzy for people, a reversal of the previous. This might fit with
Tom's identification of the latter as primary for the intermontane West.
