I'll grant you that I don't know a whole lot about the ADS list, but I did snoop for a while before entering, and the reply that I sent to the place names seemed to flow with the rest of the conversation. If you somehow think that this is a waste of bandwidth, could you substantiate the claim in some manner? If you were offended by the use of the word y'all, I apologize... I was not attempting to ridicule anyone, nor was I trying to be cute... This is my way of speaking. Being from Ohio, I promised myself that I would never "catch" the Kentucky accent, but I have acquired the "y'all," and I use it in written and oral form. If you believe that Terry is in the wrong for giving me the address, perhaps you should address him about your problem as opposed to me, for he would be the one to talk to about it. He is a teacher of mine who gave me the address because he knew that I am very interested in Linguistics and dialects. Hence, here I am! If you would care to be more specific in your objection, please, feel free. I await your reply... -- Thanks for reading! KVK III "I hate to wake you up Just to say goodbye."
