Subject: Re[2]: Greasy et al.

Is 'parsley' another such word? 'Visa' has voicing much farther

north than 'greasy'--many Wisconsin speakers have /z/ in 'visa

but not in the latter word--but many southerners have /s/ in

'parsley'. Or is /z/ in this word an oddity for southern spkrs?

I've never heard anything _but_ s in parsley. Parzley zounds very ztrange.
