Subject: dirtdaubers


D. Bedell presents a list of generally very trendy black slang words,
but one (at least) of these has a different history, "dirtdobbler",
identified as a type of wasp.
This is standard southern US (I know it primarily from Chickasaw and
Choctaw speakers (using English) in Oklahoma), "dirtdauber" or "muddauber",
a type of wasp. I think there are several varieties; the Audubon soc. guide
to insects identifies the Black-and-yellow Mud Dauber as Sceliphron caementariu

I've just received and had a brief look at what seems to be a useful
concordance program for the Mac. It looks very much like a Mac version of
the Longman's Mini-concordancer, though I don't know if it has the same
restrictions on the amount of text it can deal with. It's called D'Accord.
