- Dear Lynn,
Please accept my apologies. I misunderstood your message. I thought
you were asking for others to confirm something you were not sure
about. I now realize that you were actually informing others.
All the best,

- You're right, Eric! I am (or rather was) guilty of
overusing "obvious" and "obviously". I wrote an 80-page booklet on
CALL back in 1982 - my first major published work. It was reviewed
very positively, apart from one reviewer's comment on my overuse
of "obvious" and "obviously". Around that time the first
concordancers and word-frequency counters for microcomputers were
appearing, so I began to use them to analyse my writings - and I
still do. Yes, the reviewer was right. I am now a reformed character!
