Fritz  and all:

> Davenport was the usual term for that piece of furniture in the 1960s and
70s in Portland Oregon. Daveno was simply a shortened form of that . Heard
it all the time.

When I was growing up in Seattle in the 50's and early 60's, I used to hear
"daveno" all the time, too.  I think it kind of dropped out after that, or
else all I heard was "davenport" or "sofa". I don't think "daveno" is used
much any more.  At least not around here.
