[snip] Speaking for myself, I would say that the list focuses on language and language use. I am interested in notions of political correctness and how language should be used when they explain or provide information about language use. The issue of how language should be used is usually a question of language policy rather than language use. Jeutonne ********************************************** Jeutonne P.
