Interesting. The one from Toronto (pronounced Tranah, BTW) has a PhD in math and is a coauthor of several of my papers, so not exactly a country hick. The other one informant was not highly educated, but still seems intelligent enough.

I did know the word "stile", but only in connection with barrier to keep livestock, but not people, out. And of course, there is "turnstile", obviously related.

Leaving a rake tines up is a real no-no.
