Orac BS: UK dialect help (70* d) RE: BS: UK dialect help 22 Nov 02

Just a slight variation. The use of highth (instead of the more modern height) is still common, certainly in the midlands, yet it is no longer found in dictionaries as if it either does not exist or is obsolete, which it is not. I have a 1920's dictionary and it says of height ... "a corruption of highth" ..
