Bodin" Subject: Re: /buku/ Dear Peter, /buku/ is definitely not Cajun English; I have never heard it from a French speaker of any social dialect but instead from Anglos (such as people of Cajun extraction who speak English) or transplants who move to the fringe of the dialect area, (e.g., my aunt in Texas). Cajuns speak English mostly fluently; look for non-fluent speakers in the 65-and-over age group. Good luck finding them. --- Cathy Bodin.
