Date: Thu, 22 Dec 1994 18:27:08 -0500 From: "William A. Kretzschmar, Jr." Subject: LSA, NWAV, and all that Dennis, I was referring to Kirk Hazen on the Sociolinguistics program at LSA, not to Walt or Natalie, who of course are esteemed members of ADS. While I understand much of what Dennis has to say, I just do not agree with it. I stand with, e.g., the lexicographers in my appreciation of some of what happens at MLA. I think of *Language* in much the same way that Dennis thinks of *PMLA*. Why can't we accept that fact that there is a deep division in ADS membership and meet with neither LSA or MLA?
