Subject: Re: "swan" not "swear"

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.
