Subject: lowery, grass strip, etc
LAMSAS received quite a few responses of Lowery, as I recall. I was
hoping to find its file "clouding up" among the databases on the
map-generating web page at http://hyde.park.uga.edu but it doesn't
seem to be there yet. Ck the LANE also, but I'm sure your teacher
has suggested that.
By the way, you may not realize that Audrey Duckert is well-known
among dialectologists. In fact, her name and that of Virginia
McDavid are about the only women whose work I am familiar with from
that generation. The "rogues gallery" in the LAMSAS office is too
full of old white men (who well deserve to be there, don't get me
wrong; I have a couple on my office wall). Speaking of which, if
anyone has a photo of Guy Lowman, who would be old if he were alive,
I'd love to have a copy.
I have no word for the strip of grass beside the sidewalk. There
weren't many sidewalks in the suburbs of Atlanta where I grew up in
the 60s and 70s, and those that did exist were flush with the street.
I think the LAGS urban supplement asked that question, besides DARE.
