Cathy Ball's address ---------------------------------------------------------------------- Date: Fri, 14 Jan 1994 00:19:16 -0700 From: Rudy Troike Subject: Re: consonantal /r/ It is curious, when you think about the extensive Scottish, Scotch- Irish, and Irish immigration to various parts of the Eastern States at various times (and in the 1840s, in massive numbers), not to find equally extensive occurrence of post-vocalic consonantal /r/. Particularly given some of the isolation in Appalachia, it is surprising that some did not survive or even prevail. --Rudy Troike
