#120678 - 01/21/04 02:43 PM Elision
Loc: Seattle, Washington, USA
I mentioned this thread at court this morning and one of the clerks related a wonderful example, only one degree off the definition of elision. In her family, they refer to a common dish as "chick and noodle soup." Faldage prolly likes that, too.

Sounds kinda like anti-elision, what with the added d and all.
Attualy® I think it's more what they call reanalysis.

Dear Faldage: Now that you've got Father Steve infringing on your patented triple elision (prolly) what's your name

>He's free to use it. It ain' mine.
well, I can lay claim to being the first to use it locally; i.e., here in AWADtalk. so you're not free to quit claim in this case.
but he's still free to use it.

There are people all over the world who study elision in different languages; they are all in elision fields, of course._________________________
