It gave a map for each expression, but not a final compilation. Also lacks place to insert more complicated situations, e.g. i say lunch and supper and reserve dinner for big meals, whatever the time of day. To me the space between street and sidewalk is neutral ground, though that is the New Orleans term for a boulevard.
