Someone may have pointed out the spelling problem as I didn't notice the sign this week. The semantics are probably more significant. Is this an isolated case or is -able taking on a new function? I have seen so much idiosyncratic orthography lately that it is impossible to even remember all of it. Our local high school did have a banner a couple of years back proclaiming "We love are Turks" in honor of the football team. Allen On Wed, 22 Mar 1995, Larry Horn wrote: > Garagable? not garageable?
