Double modals in Utah (4) ---------------------------------------------------------------------- Date: Wed, 29 Jun 1994 14:09:21 MDT From: Marianna Di Paolo 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. Marianna
