Subject: Re: upspeak
that not everyone upspeaks doesn't mean that its interpretation is
not universal, just that some (sub)cultures need it more than others.
(just like some folks smile more than others.)
My impression of upspeak in Milledgeville is that it is used by people who
smile a lot. I associate the pattern with people who are trying to be
polite and helpful.
