Subject: Re: FAQ

Please send information about this group. I'm a new subscriber.

I'm answering this on the list instead of directly in case there are

other newcomers. As the welcome message says, the purpose of this list

is to serve as a forum for the exchange of information and ideas by

members of the American Dialect Society. Although outsiders are welcome

here, there is no reason for a FAQ file since most of the people on this

list are active dialectologists/sociolinguistics and don't have the kinds

of questions that usually show up in FAQ files.

For more information, look at the ADS web pages (

Archives/ADS/), gopher space (, or ftp files (ftp.msstate.
