Subject: Re: SYRACUSE / Yuston, Texas
All this talk about Syracuse has reminded me of the surprise I got when I was back in the US
driving around Texas a few years ago. I kept hearing people on the radio talk about Yuston,
Texas and couldn't figure out where that was. (Houston) As a linguist, it made good enough
sense (humor, etc.), but as a Southerner, it came as a shock.
Is this something new that I had never heard because I've been away from the US too long?
Is this something that had always been there and I had never heard because I was from a
different part of the South? (Tennessee)
Is this something that has already been discussed on ADS-L that I'm gonna get yelled at for
not having read?
