In the next couple of weeks (before the annual meeting), I will be
completely removing all of the entries now on the experts list on the
ADS website here:


This list is for people who do not mind being contacted with language
questions by journalists and (rarely) lawyers looking for expert
testimony. It does not generate a huge number of calls, but it
generates enough that American Dialect Society members are regularly
able to properly represent the current consensus of our academic
domains in the popular media.

If you would like to be added or re-added to that page, you *must* be
an American Dialect Society member and send me the following:

phone number
email address
areas of expertise

I am removing the publications, affiliations, and other parts of the entries.

Media tell me that they will almost never contact someone who doesn't
also have a phone number, so I cannot include your entry if you do not
include a phone number.

Please send your information to me, not to the email list.
