Dear Dennis,
Hee-hee, yes, it is true, i was relying on my ioway stress rules--i always
use these as examples of phonemic stress with my classes and they always nod
their heads solemnly and tell me I am right.

It is amazing what they will agree to, I guess. Still, I can't imagine even
Jesse Helms talkin' bout Lincoln's Gettysburg ADDress and not meaning the
street where he slept. Can you?

Your friend,

one minute, and give a short ADDress to the audience the next.

was told by the instructor that Professsor Preston's judgments about
grammaticality were not trustworthy; in fact, the instructor
reflected, they were dangerous) >>
