An on-line paper by John Fraim, Electric Symbols: Internet Words And
Culture, in _First Monday_, June 2002, 7 #6, contends that "Words both
create and communicate worldviews.  The greatest potential in history
for the observation and analysis of words exists on the Internet. . . .
the Internet can be considered history's greatest observatory and
laboratory of words."


Among the ADS-related topics/people noted in the paper are:  American
Speech; ATNW; America in So Many Words, by Barnhart and Metcalf; Connie
Eble; Linguistics Society of America; and Dennis R. Preston.
