In an article on executions of Jews in Eastern Europe during the
Holocaust, highlighting research showing that "a third or more" died
not by gas in concentration camps but by being shot in small numbers
in "thousands of villages, quarries, forests, wells, streets and homes".

"Father Desbois has worked with the American Jewish Committee on five
sites in Ukraine and Belarus to clear them, find their parameters and
have them marked."

  NYTimes, Jan. 27/28,
or p. A10 (col. 4 in NE Edition).

I assume this should have been "perimeters".  (Word's first
correction suggestion for "perameters" is "parameters".)
