Good news from DARE! Volume VI has just shipped from the Harvard
University Press warehouse to bookstores across the country. It should
be available near you in the next few days. But if volumes of DARE are
on your holiday giving list (or on your own wish list), why not avail
yourself of a coupon for 20% off any of the six volumes? You can find it


on the last page of the current issue of the DARE Newsletter.

Volume VI has hundreds of contrastive maps (so you can see, for
instance, the distributions of hero, hoagie, grinder, sub, torpedo, and
Cuban all in one place); "social" maps showing contrasts by age, sex,
race, education and community type; the full index to regional, usage,
and etymological labels in the five volumes of text; the DARE
Questionnaire; and all of the responses to 430 of the questions asked
during the original fieldwork. It's a great teaching tool and a fun book
to browse.

Happy Holidays!
