[DWJ] offtopic dialect question

I was amused to come across this in Susan Cooper's _Victory_ tonight: 
' ... and the sailors with long hair plaited each other's pigtails 
smooth and neat.' (FWIW,  I'm one of the pigtail = braid/plait 
people, but didn't bother chiming in because of the type of 
multiple-location confusion Gili described.)

And now this can even swing vaguely on-topicwards, as I just saw the 
nice new(ish) copy of _The Dark is Rising_  with DWJ's 'I wish I'd 
written these!' on the cover.
