Date: Wed, 12 Jul 1995 10:30:34 -0400 From: Wayne Glowka 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.
