Subject: Re: Stoled
I don't understand (but I don't necessarily object to) the use of
"stoled." The -ed seems redundant. One already has the past in "stole."
Why add the same sense again with "-ed?" This is about as comprehensible to
my East Coast sensiblities as "roded"would be for the past tense of "ride."
. (An aside: I'm from near Baltimore, MD. Having a large number of American
dialects is a beautiful thing. That doesn't make the Baltimore accent any
less ugly.) I suppose it makes sense if one drops the L. BTW, "l-vocalizer."
seems to be used in two different senses. Which is correct?

I first encountered a problem with this word earlier in the year
when I tried to spell it and realized, looking at it, that it was not a
word. I continue
to use it, however. I like it.
