My name is Caren Chesler, and I'm a freelance reporter writing a story
for the New York Times on the origins of the "Long Island accent."

  In searching the internet under the headings of linguist, and accent
and dialect, your organization came up. I'd like to talk to you about
the Long Island accent and where it may have come from. Please write
back if you're interested. Or, if you know of anyone who is
knowledgeable about this issue, please write back and let me know.
