There seems to be an item which slipped by all our dutiful proofreading in the July issue of Southern Changes probably because the error had the sound of being grammatically correct — but unfortunately it left an incorrect impression — and I have promised the author, Paige Gutierrez — that we will print the correction. The error comes on page 25, midway through the first column. It should read "The Genteel Acadian is likely to be a speaker of standard French, whereas the "Proud Coonass" is more likely to speak a nonstandard Cajun dialect."
