Query:   Has anyone ever commented on the idiom "that's a whole nother thing",
where the word "whole" is inserted inside the word "another"? I've
heard this in New York City dialects (the one I grew up with; I've
said "a whole nother thing" all my life but only recently realized
how odd it is) and also in Australia.
