Subject: World Wide Words moves to LINGUIST list server

World Wide Words is a weekly newsletter about the English 
language, written by Michael Quinion, a freelance wordsmith and 
a researcher into new words for Oxford Dictionaries. The focus 
is on etymology and on new word formation, though the mix also 
includes book reviews, usage queries, notes on words in the 
news, and answers to questions. 

The newsletter is sent each weekend to subscribers in more than 
70 countries, who cover a wide spectrum of professional and 
private interest in the English language. The newsletter is 
written in non-technical language to be as accessible as 
possible. 

Subscriber numbers have now increased beyond the capacity of a 
manual system and Michael Quinion is grateful to the owners of 
vvthe LINGUIST list for agreeing to host World Wide Words on their 
list server. 

To join the list, e-mail <listservlistserv.linguistlist.org> 
with this command in the body of your message:

 SUBSCRIBE WORLDWIDEWORDS Your_first_name Your_last_name

Earlier newsletters and other articles are archived on the World 
Wide Words Web site, which now contains more than 400 pages. 
This, too, has just had a change of address, and is now at:
