Volume V is now available, so until the online version of DARE is up and running we won't be doing any new editing. At that point we'll be asking for your input on more items. Until then, we're still running across new terms and defining regions for the following:
Do you call the strip of grass and trees between the sidewalk and the curb a: boulevard, curb line, grass plot, parking (strip), parkway, terrace, or tree lawn? Or do you have another term for it? Please e-mail Senior Editor Luanne von Schneidemesser and include where you learned or use the term, if there were other geographical influences in your life, your age and gender, and your preferred e-mail so we can get back to you if we have further questions. If possible, give us a URL where we could look up what term your local govenment uses (city/town/village bylaws, trash or leaf collecting regulations, etc.) or mail us (DARE, 6129 Helen C. White Hall, 600 N. Park St., Madison, WI 53706) a copy of the first page and the relevant page of the document showing usage. This would be most helpful.
Thanks for your help in sending us your usage on our queries.
