Given that American Dialect Society List was home to some of the discussion that in part led to it--say, e.g., George Thompson writing "...the common people have their own knowledge. Men from the cockney district may have been in Egypt & the Near East as soldiers or seamen, and seen the whip carried and used"-- some may be interested to know of a new publication:

Origin of Kibosh: Routledge Studies in Etymology

by Gerald Cohen, Stephen Goranson, and Matthew Little.
