Hi, Chuck Coker here. I've been following this "swan" vs. "swear" thread,
and I was wondering: could "swan" be "sworn" pronounced /swan/? I've
seen replies from all over, but they keepreminding me of living in Lubbock,
TX, and hearing people say things such as "I cooda [could have] swan [sworn]
it was . . ."
I'm probaly way out in left field here, but just curious.
