Date: Fri, 28 Jan 1994 14:21:13 EST From: Larry Horn Subject: Hi, y'all. Something new to track down, this one per request of Linda Shrieves, the de facto pop linguistics columnist of the Orlando Sentinel, who helped make the quest for ...NOT famous a little over a year ago. This time she's wondering if anyone can track down the source, or at least a representative sample of early citations, for "Been there. Done that." as now used in, inter alia, commercials and no doubt popular movies and TV shows. It seems to me that I've come across a reference (Safire? Something here or on Linguist?) but I can't recall where or what. You can mail to me (at the above address) or to the list. Thanks. Larry
