Subject: queries re IPA, jig time, lay with

Can you help on any of the following?

First the technical: We are looking for an IPA font to run on DOS, not

Windows, for a BubbleJet, which emulates a dot matrix printer, not a laser

printer. I tried all the responses from last year's Linguist list which

were passed on to me, but the people have left no forwarding address so the

mail was simply returned to me, or, as with the SIL font, the font is only

for Windows or for laser printers. Laser printers don't do well with 4 x 6

inch paper. Can anyone help, pleeeease?

Next the points on which DARE needs clarification:

Do you know the expression in jig time? It seems it might be regional, but

there is doubt. If you know it, from where?

How about lay with (it), meaning hold tight to, keep at, stick with; also

for this area of usage.
