Orac BS: UK dialect help (70* d) RE: BS: UK dialect help 25 Nov 02

Steve Parker... thanks for the link. I'm very surprised that the person writing this had never come across the word highth (or heighth)when he was still in England as its still very common but maybe not in the south. As I'm a draughtsman maybe I hear the word more often than most so I notice when the use of the older form accurs. Until fairly recently I said it this way myself as all my family did .. I probably still do sometimes.
