oh, of course.  this is a good place to start a conversation, and to
work through very partially baked ideas, or just to marvel over data.

occasionally i post some things to the Language Log
( -- for instance, there's a recent piece on
obligatorily split infinitives there -- but LL things need to be fairly
brief, polished, *and* jaunty (not to mention submitted in html), so i
submit things there only every so often.

it has occurred to me that i might never submit a truly anonymous
abstract again; almost all of my ideas surface in some electronically
public place (ADS-L, LL, soc.motss, etc.) first.
