      Thank you Vincent for clarifying some points in my question. Part of the
      confusion with the interchanging readings SWMA/PTWMA comes from the comment
      in Bauer which reads (under the entry PTWMA):

      Mt 14:12 and Mk 15:45 have SWMA (instead of PTWMA), a more dignified word.

      This is strange since Bauer knows that SWMA is used to denote the dead body
      since Homer. The entry SWMA makes this clear:

      SWMA 1. body of man or animal-a.) dead body, corpse (so always in Homer and
      often later)

      Therefore, it is not the case that SWMA is more "dignified" than PTWMA.
      The logical conlusion is that SWMA and PTWMA were used as dialectical
      variants (no cognates, naturally).
      Carl Conrad made a comment on b-greek list the that Alexandrians
      used the word SWMA to refer to Alexander's tomb. The manuscripts from Egypt,
      in general, prefer the reading SWMA.
      Does anybody knows about some other pairs of dialectical variants
      that cohere geographically with the local text types?

      Regards,
      Alexander
