Re: Chronicle article: Beware the language policeGreek-German (born and raised in Europe) to complicate things:-) 
Because Stan's message was in Spanish. The article in question was about Hispanics, and I think Stan assumed I wrote it and therefore wrote to me in Spanish. 

Best,
Alkistis

PS: What does "Varfør inte på svenska?" mean?

    ÿþ Hola, Just to clarify this, since the message belownbsp;was sentnbsp;to the list. I recently forwarded an article that appeared in the Chronicle of Higher Education to the language policy list; the article ("Beware the language police") was written by Will H. Corral,nbsp;not myself. nbsp; nbsp; Best, Alkistis nbsp; PS:nbsp;Si, Alkistis es un nombre griego. Más en otro mensaje. nbsp; nbsp; ----- Original Message ----- From: Stan amp; Sandy Anonby To: lgpolicy-list at ccat.sas.upenn.edu Sent: Thursday, July 10, 2003 12:50 AM Subject: Re: Chronicle article: Beware the language police Que tal Alkistis?nbsp; nbsp; Me interesó bastante lo que escribistes, y tienes razón.nbsp; La diversidad es tan bonita, y devemos celebrarla.nbsp; Pero es dificil preservar la diversidad sin esteriotipos, no? nbsp; Vivo ennbsp;Brasil, que no tienenbsp;la diversidad que existe in los EEUU.nbsp; No sé exactamente porque, pero me parece que tiene algo que ver con elnbsp;pueblo brasilero, que es más "gente de mano abierta" que los estadounidenses - menos aferrada a los esteriotipos. nbsp; No se si te acuerdas de mí.nbsp; Soy el que escribió esa frase, "Montreal es la ciudad más divertida de Canadá".nbsp; Conosco bastantes ecuatorianos, pero nunca conocí una Alkistis.nbsp; Me interesa tu nombre.nbsp; De donde viene?nbsp; Suponía que eras de la comunidade griega de Montreal. nbsp; Chau, nbsp; Stan Jose Anonby
