Subject: a whole nother
This "slown down" discussion reminds me of something I caught myself
saying, which surprised the bejeebers [sp?] out of me:
"That's a whole nother problem."
In writing it looks totally proposterous, but it sounds quite
natural to me. Since noticing it in my own speech, I now hear it
quite frequently (in the San Francisco Bay Area).
Is this common elsewhere? Does anyone know of similar constructions?
