Subject: doppkit

Anyone ever hear of the word "doppkit" used for the shaving kits

servicement used in WWII? Tom Murray has heard it from a 60ish colleague,

but its not in DARE or anywhere else.

Also: The elliptical construction with "like," e.g., "the dog likes

petted." This is similar to "the car needs washed" or "the cat wants

out," both well attested. Anyone heard of similar ellipses with "like"?
