Subject: Re: English-only Amendments
English is now the official language in Georgia. I was hoping to get more
information on the legislative arguments by having a student do a term
paper on the law, but the Macon and Atlanta papers never printed much
detail--probably because no one cared enough to make an interesting stink.
I thought that it would be fun to examine legislative speeches about
official English for solecisms, barbarisms, and the like (a la Sledd's old
article on bidialectalism in the service of Big Brother). But we had no
such luck with our local resources.
