>>Wednesday on PBS, Robert McNeil's new "Do You Speak American?" has
>>its premier.  My students having been longing for a more current
>>version of American Tongues--let's hope this is close.
>>There's also a new (expensive) set of videos on "The Adventure of
>>English, 500 A.D. to 2000" (Films for the Humanities), so possibly
>>"The Story of English" can be superceded if one's library can afford
>>the nearly $1000 price tag.
>>Happy New Year THELions.
