Date: Mon, 11 Aug 1997 17:49:45 EST From: Boyd Davis Subject: vogue words:early references Early edns of Pyles and later Pyles and Algeo used the term, and John Algeo has written about vogue words for a good while. An early reference is to an article by Pyles in ALL THESE TO TEACH, a U.Fla festschrift for C A Robertson in the mid-60s, and you might also look at John's early-70s On defining the proper name. Don't have Fowler's BritUsage handy, but I think the term was used there (in the 1930s edn)
