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.
