You couldn't live in a better area to get the help you are seeking. I
gather from your Netnitco address that you live in Northwest Indiana. I
live in Chesterton. The help you need is to be found from Virginia
McDavid, who lives in Ogden Dunes. Unfortunately, she is leaving
tomorrow morning for a trip, but will be back on the 29th oif March. I
am sure that she will be happy to help you.

Virginia did fieldwork for the Linguistic Atlas of the Upper Midwest and
has the published volumes of that work on her bookshelves. In addition,
she is personally knowledgeable about the upper midwest dialect.

You can reach her at mcdavid[AT SYMBOL GOES HERE] Her telephone number is 219/762
If you can wait until after the 29th, I am sure that she will be happy
to give you any help you need.
