Date: Wed, 17 Jan 1996 10:12:20 CST From: Joan Hall Subject: Re: Piggin (Bucket) Terry, DARE has lots of written evidence for "piggin," but only three instances from Informants. One was from an old Massachusetts Inf, one an old SC Inf, and another (age unknown) from Virginia. There's lots of historical evidence from New England and the South Midland, with most of the 20th century quotes from the South Midland and some from coastal south. Bill Kretzschmar's data from LAMSAS show a nice isogloss for "piggin," with most of the responses occurring in Georgia. If you are interested in the written citations, let me know and I'll have them Xeroxed for you. Joan
