Date: Fri, 13 Jan 1995 19:20:53 -0500 From: AAllan[AT SYMBOL GOES HERE]AOL.COM Subject: Re: WOTY FYI, cyberADSers, nominations for WOTY begin with two lists of a couple dozen words each, one from the Algeos, one from David Barnhart: words they are noting for possible *future* issues. So we get a *preview* of ANW and BDC. Like good academics, they have their lists ready at the last possible moment; and anyhow, like good scholars, they wait till the year is nearly over to look back at the words of the whole year. I think we could arrange to get those lists in cyberspace a few days in advance of our nominating committee meeting (open to all, Dec. 28) and vote (Dec 29). That will be progress, but believe me, it won't solve the fundamental problems. - AAllan PS. Thanks, Dennis B. - A statuette would be a helpful antidote to an overdose of seriousness. Shall we call it a "Noah" after Webster?
