Allan Metcalf mentions Comments on Etymology, an on-paper newsletter edited by Gerald Cohen. Allan says, “for anyone seriously interested in the origins of American expressions, especially slang ones, CoE is indispensable. For anyone not-so-seriously interested, it’s entertaining and engaging.” The newsletter includes heavy and regular contributions by Barry Popik. To subscribe, send $13 (if an individual; $17 if an institution), payable to “Comments on Etymology,” to Gerald Cohen, Dept of Applied Arts and Cultural Studies, University of Missouri-Rolla, Rolla, MO 65401.
