Up there they pronounce it "youse" as in "youse guys" are outta your turf. Come to think of it I have never heard it used referring to females. The other night on TV a character evidently designed in the Mark Furman mold coined a new, obnoxious term. He said "I don't discriminate against Afro-Americans or gyno-Americans." I wonder what the term would be for men? Any ideas? Seth Sklarey Wittgenstein School of the Unwritten Word Coconut Grove, FL
