USA" 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. Chuck Coker CJCoker[AT SYMBOL GOES HERE]CSUPomona.Edu
