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. edu/pub/archives/ADS). --Natalie (maynor[AT SYMBOL GOES HERE]
