On Mon, 30 Jun 1997, TERRY IRONS continued the query:

But we (this inchoate ultra-orthodox-bardo-thodal-zen-jew

and I, as if there is a difference between us) also have an intuition

that there is another term for self and/or other reference to people from

the Ozarks, in contrast to people from the Appalachians. Is there such

a self or other reference term, or is our intuition wrong?

I've told you all I know -- if they are hillbillies, they call themselve

hillbillies (but see earlier note). Please let me know what you learn.
