The question that strikes me as interesting is which dialects distinguish between two pronunciations, one as in "mind your own business" and one as in "she owns her own business." How those of us who pronounce both meanings in the same way seems less important. Vicki Rosenzweig vr%acmcr.uucp[AT SYMBOL GOES HERE] New York, NY
