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
