As far I know, not in this go-round. However (I think I read it in an _English Today_ article sometime in 88-89--I can check when I go home), laws of this nature were passed in the early part of the century (mostly relating to use of German) and one of those DID make it to the Supreme Court. It was declared unconstitutional (but I don't remember on what grounds). Barbara Need University of Chicago--Linguistics
