It's been used on this list a couple of time before. I know it was in a
recent book, on phonology or acquisition, although I don't have the title
handy. It's part of the title of my thesis.
The term 'mid-Atlantic' is in use by linguists as well as non-linguists.
How much currency it has in either sphere, though, is another question.
