Subject: RE Amerax?
Here's what I found that might help (note that I am leaving out references to the Amerax, which seems to be a brand of clothing).
From the Ethnologue Database:
-- AMERAX (USA), Language code AEX, Continent North America, Genetic affiliation Unclassified, Needs survey. Remarks: Spoken by Neo-Muslims in prisons. It may have Arabic influences (J. Milton Cowan 1990). Religion: Muslim
Books edited by J. Milton Cowan:
-- Hans-Wehr Dictionary of Modern Written Arabic, published by Spoken Languages Services.
Here are other mentions of a J. M. Cowan, but I don't think they apply.
"Cytogenetics analysis in melanoma and nevi"; J.M. Cowan, U. Francke.
The study of the temperate rhododendrons was started at RBGE by Sir Isaac Bayley Balfour (Regius Keeper 1888-1922)... Between 1950 and 1973 this work was taken over by J.M. Cowan...
