re: randy salenfriend
No idea, but maybe this defintion can straighten out the confusion :
Main Entry: cat.er.cor.ner
Pronunciation: 'ka-tE-"kor-n&r, 'ka-t&-, 'ki-tE-
Function: adverb or adjective
Etymology: obsolete cater four + corner
Variant(s): also cat.er.cor.nered /-n&rd/
: in a diagonal or oblique position : on a diagonal or oblique line
Main Entry: kit.ty-cor.ner
Variant(s): or kit.ty-cor.nered
NOW i know that the editors of the board do not like cut and paste, so i am going to credit where this came from so that i don't get yelled at!
It is taken from Merriam-Websters Collegiate Dictionary online.
And basically he words are a bastardization of Catercorner. which came from god only knows what olde english ranting....
Have a nice day!
