While there seems to be a lot of work on focus, types of focus, etc.,
I cannot find much of anything on focus in general, and types of focus
in particular, in questions.

If you have some good references on this topic please let me know by
e-mail (face.2osu.edu) and I will post a summary to the list.

Thank you.

Who when and where was the first to use the term "shift of the codes"?

Thank you,
