For the record:

- "Most" is an adjective [or an adjectival adverb, as in "most
pedantic" or most "anal-retentive"].
- "Almost" is an adverb for use with other adverbs.

"Most all" and "most every" simply will not do -- third incident on
TECHWR-L in two weeks.

Please don't read the dictionary to me -- we all know what I mean here.

Love,

Yer Mother

P.S. You never write, you never call. . .
