Thank you, all who responded to my request for suggestions for a list of commonly misspelled words. I turned a list in, and have learned that they will appear on a U of TN website as the "10 _____ _____" of the month. As soon as I have the URL, I'll post it. 2. Thank you, also, everyone who made suggestions about dictionary resources on the topic of misspellings and also other topic. As a result of your postings, I have decided to update the library presentation I give undergraduate students (in several different courses, Ling 200 this semester) every semester. I enlist the help of a reference librarian that I often work with in introducing students to linguistic resources. Together we haul many volumes to a classroom in the library. There we show students the different kinds of info available in different kinds of dictionaries. After we play with those for a while, we go out to the computer area and look at the OED2 on CD-ROM. I would welcome suggestions from any of you who have ideas about useful items or exercises. After I have completed my revision of the library exercise, I'll post some info about it to the list. I am particulary grateful for website addressses I received. Are there others I should know about? Bethany
