Date: Mon, 15 Jan 1996 18:32:42 -0500 From: Benjamin Barrett Subject: Denny's, etc restaurants ADSers, After living in Japan for a couple of years, I'm not always sure when a word is English or a Japanese coinage (ie, pantystocking (pantyhose) and autobike (not in my dialect, anyway)). A question was just brought up on the Japanese translators' forum concerning restaurants like Denny's. What do people call them in everyday parlance? Please respond privately and I will compile and submit to ADS. san kyuu Benjamin Barrett
