The Lansing State Journal announced on 12/23 that UP English,
"Yooper-speak", is dying out.


The January 1 edition also claims that the 30-year-old Lake Superior
State University "List of Words Banished from the Queen's English for
Mis-Use, Over-Use, and General Uselessness" was imitated by the ADS
"Words of the Year".   How long has the ADS been doing this, and did the
idea come from the LSSU list, as the LSJ claims?
