We'd like to remind readers that the responses to queries are usually best posted to the individual asking the question. That individual is then strongly encouraged to post a summary to the list. This policy was instituted to help control the huge volume of mail on LINGUIST; so we would appreciate your cooperating with it whenever it seems appropriate. In addition to posting a summary, we'd like to remind people that it is usually a good idea to personally thank those individuals who have taken the trouble to respond to the query.

Message 1: Query: Aetalect

Subject: Query: Aetalect

I've been using the term "aetalect" in my intro class for a few years
as a term for the generational differences in language (along with
regiolect, sociolect, and ethnolect). But I can no longer recover
where I got the term from, and can find zero evidence of its usage in
the books on my shelves or on the web (not a single hit!). Surely I'm
not completely delusional. Does anyone have a reference for me?
Respond off-list, and I'll report back in with any results. Thanks.

Subject: evaluating websites for promotion and tenure





Dear Colleagues,

I wonder if any Linguistics departments have come up with guidelines
for evaluating website creation as part of merit evaluation or for
promotion/tenure decisions. If your department has developed such
guidelines, I wonder if you might be willing to share them with my
department.

Thanks very much. Please respond directly to me.

Sincerely,

Barbara Fox
Chair, Linguistics
