Subject: Double modals in Utah
Tom Clark forwarded the message from Keith Russell to me in which he
commented on Tom's claim that Ogdenites used double modals. The first
one I may have ever heard in Utah may have been from a student from
Ogden. I have noted many others since then. I would be VERY
surprised if natives of Utah Valley (as opposed to all the
out-of-state students at BYU) did not use DMs. But I am not in Salt
Lake City now (I am at Bryn Mawr for an institute) and can't check my
folder in which I collect slips of paper of Utah DMs until late July.
In any case, I think that there are several Utah double modals in one
of the footnotes to my AmSp article on DMs.
