Subject: Linguists in the media on Oakland School Board's Ebonics resolution

I am presently researching how the print media used linguist's
expertise in their coverage of the Oakland School Board's Ebonics

As part of this research I am collecting information from
linguists who sent letters to the editor of any newspapers.

If you sent a letter to the editor, I'd appreciate your
sending me an e-mail with the following information:

1. the name of the newspaper
2. whether or not it was published.

Additionally, if you still have the letter and would be
willing to send it to me, I would appreciate that as well.
