Surely nobody is considering our recent chit-chat to be a survey?? Not only can an accurate dialect survey not be conducted by electronic means, we are not a very likely target group for a survey anyway. I thought we were simply having fun. And occasionally, out of some of the "fun" type discussion, somebody might discover something useful of course. --Natalie (maynor[AT SYMBOL GOES HERE]
