O'Neill asked about publications dealing with the unique aspects of the speech of gays (if there are any). Did anyone think to mention william Leap's new book, WORD'S OUT: GAY MEN'S ENGLISH (U of Minnesota Press, 1996; ISBN#0-8166-2253-1)? Also useful should be the articles in BEYOND THE LAVENDER LEXICON, ed. William L. Leap (Gordon and Breach Publishing, 1995; ISBN#2-88449-181-3).
