<< Mario Pei wrote some good popular books about linguistics, as I recall,
they're some decades old now...
>>Is linguistics the kind of science that would make that a problem? I
wouldn't have guessed so. A good older book is worth a dozen bad newer
books, and here I am preaching to the choir, right?
I don't suppose Mario Pei would be related to I.M. Pei the architect? Or am
I spelling him (her?) wrong?
