I've read (I wish I could remember where) that this is a Hudson Valley feature. This kind of report could indicate that positive anymore WAS found in the Hudson Valley a generation ago. My parents live in a VERY small town in southern Columbia County (across the river and a little north of Kingston). My mother associates positive anymore with a specific friend of hers, a woman of about 60, who was born and raised in town ("Oh, C- says that."), so it really may be a relic usage. Next time I talk to my parents, I'll ask if she's heard anyone else use positive anymore. Alice Faber Faber[AT SYMBOL GOES HERE]Yalehask.Yale.edu
