Dennis writes:

The 'American' Dialect Society discusses dialects of the 'Americas' (not

exclusively US, not even exclusively English -- see the 'mission statement'

of the society).

Where does one find the "mission statement of the society"? Or does

Dennis mean the editorial policy of MERICQN SPEECH (printed inside the

back cover of ech issue)?
