some queries

        Hi - I'd like to beg for a little help.  I have students working on
1) Maine English, and in general the linguistic history of Maine, 2)
Appalachian English, 3) jargons in American English (she got interested in
that _Smithsonian_ account of the military use of Native American words as
a secret language in World War II).  I know a little about these things,
but I'm wondering whether subscribers to this list might have bibliographic
suggestions to make.  Off the top of your head only!  I don't want to ask
anyone to rummage through files or libraries, just, if possible, to take a
second and send me the obvious things that you know and I don't!
        Thanks in advance, Larry Rosenwald
