Lance" Subject: Re: Comment on MLA When considering what will be missed when/if ADS no longer has its big meeting with MLA -- Remember PDE. Discussions in the Present-Day English sessions made rather direct contributions to the planning for the Atlas. I've found the Lexicography Discussion Group to be interesting. And sometimes Language & Society has good programs. And some of the other lang/ling sessions, such as Language Theory, often are organized by spirits kindred to ADS members. I'm not arguing against change -- just inserting some little reminders. DMLance
