Subject: All the news thats fit to print

If your appetite is whetted by the ADS-L tidbits of information about

meetings, new words, new books, journals, committees, colleagues -- you won't

want to miss the full in-depth battery-free presentation of everything you

wanted to know about the current activities of members of the American

Dialect Society, in the brand-new Newsletter of the American Dialect Society

Vol 27 No 1. It will be back from the printer this Friday February 17 (yes,

sorry, a little late for a January issue), and immediately in the first-class

mail for all members of the Society, who can expect to get it in the week of

the 20th.

What? You're not a member? Well, I'll send you this issue as a sample,

along with a membership invitation, if you'll send me your s-mail address so

the Postal Service can bring you the 16-page compendium.
