FACT: AN ACCURATE DIALECT SURVEY OF NORTH AMERICA CANNOT BE CONDUCTED
BY ELECTRONIC MEANS.
Surely nobody is considering our recent chit-chat to be a survey?? Not
only can an accurate dialect survey not be conducted by electronic means,
we are not a very likely target group for a survey anyway. I thought we
were simply having fun. And occasionally, out of some of the "fun" type
discussion, somebody might discover something useful of course.
