I have, therefore am willing to acknowledge that I may do it again someday. Authorship often matters to me because I understand somewhat the role of context (including author and audience) in human communication. You ask: "Why are you so afraid to discuss issues about language?" Is it possible that you have me confused with someone else??? Thank you for giving me the opportunity to clarify matters. Bethany
