Born and raised in Utah, we always referred to the paved area for walking that ran parallel to the road as the "sidewalk." (And it had to be paved--usually with concrete. I remember how excited we were when I was about 10 and the city put sidewalks in on our street.) To me, a "walkway" would be broader than a sidewalk and would be someplace like an open shopping plaza. The "sidewalk" leading to the front door would have to be the "front walk." By definition, a sidewalk would have to be for walking along the street. * * * * * * * * * * Kathleen Sheridan k.sheridan[AT SYMBOL GOES HERE] International Service for National Agricultural Research (ISNAR) The Hague, The Netherlands * * * * * * * * * *
