Subject: urgent call for information

Help! Reporter for Wall St. Journal asked for information about

makers of lists of condemned words. I thought of Lake

Superior State College annual New Year's Dishonour List,

and of NCTE Committee on Public Doublespeak; but are there

others? (complete with addresses or phone numbers)

I told him I

'd send him information tomorrow (Thurs 1/20)

so anything you can sent tonight would be a he

lp. I will check

mail early Thurs 1/20 morning. Even after this urgent

deadline, I wouldn't mind inf

o, to be prepared for the future.

The reporter wasn't mainly concentrating on this; he was


ost interested in our choosing "information superhighway"

as word of the year; has already talked with Barnhart,

will talk with Algeo.

Thanks for your help & suggestions. - Allan Metcalf
