At the moment our project at work involves reading papers written by 10th graders in Utah. And this word, sluff, keeps appearing in their papers. It does not, however, appear in a dictionary, so it must be a reagionalism and slang. It’s not used in any consistant manner, so it’s hard to pin-point what they mean through context. Can someone who uses the word explain what it means?
Until the Dialect Survey I never saw an example of someone using “anymore” in a sentence. Now I’ve seen it in a paper, and it doesn’t seem to indicate time like I assumed. What’s meant by it?
