Thanks for the links, especially the one with the fantastic picture of theQuote:i]Maybe where you are it is a corruption of sluice rather than coming from the word for a marshy bog, slough, by dropping off the sibilant sound from the end?[/i]
I doubt it. The dictionaries don't agree with you. There are many sloughs in California mainly in the delta region ([url=http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Slough_(wetland)]link
Stockton Slough. The slough's here are also named, and, while not as large
as the pictured one, some carry small boats from one place to another.
And my dictionary agrees with you, but I am yet to check on-line ones.
Again thanks for the picture: really good.
