Subject: reference to Eckert

My cryptic reference to "the Eckert anthology" can be expanded to P.

Eckert, ed., *New Ways of Analysing Sound Change* (Orlando: Academic

Press, 1991). The book is ridiculously expensive (c. $95, as I recall),

but has a number of really fine essays in it, including Labov's "The

Three Dialects of English" which circulated privately for years and was

cited in extenso in Wolfram's *Dialects and American English* before it

ever officially was in print.
