There is a dialect vocabulary question here.... I would... really like an

answer to the dialect question at the end of the post.

I don't have an offhand answer to your specific question, but it reminds me

(especially in light of the dialect discussions on this list in mid-June

when I was away) that the 1997 edition of _Dictionaries_ is just now out,

with a Forum on "Dialect Labeling in Dictionaries," seven pieces running

from pp. 94-189, some by folks who post to this list, and four by people

with DARE affiliations.
