Subject: Re: The great California freeway isogloss revisited
More native speaker data froma southern Californian (who lived in Berkeley
for 4 years, too):
In giving directions, I can say both (free variation?):
Get on (the) 91. Then take (the) 55 into the 405. Gte off at XYZ.
To delete the last 'the' is very, very 'iffy'. (Typo above: 'Get'.)
I can't believe that with 40 yars of TG-GB, etc., all this has not been
studied to death. Come on guys and gals: there has got to be a ton of
publications on this stuff.
