I was seriously under the weather long term due to a doctor's screw-up in December and was therefore unable to stay on top of my writing obligations. I'm now functioning and nearly well and am able to look to next year a bit. I would work up the paper I mentioned last year on Appalachian English and idea/ideal hypercorrection. I realize this is an inconvenience, but if you have a slot or in need, I may be able to contribute. Hope things are going well for you. . .
