Pulliam" Subject: Re: thanx for pignuts Greg, what does it mean for an item to "sound regional"? Bethany Dumas What I meant was, that sounded/appeared/seemed upon hearing it from my father to be a likely regionalism, especially given that I had never heard/seen/come across it before and that my dad and I grew up in different parts of the USA and therefore use different regional items. Does this make sense? Nevertheless, I should have checked it out myself before posting the list about it--again, my apologies. Greg Pulliam IIT-Chicago
