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. To post to LINGUIST, use our convenient web form at http://linguistlist.org/LL/posttolinguist.html.

Message 1: Origin of the term "idiolect"

Subject: Origin of the term "idiolect"

Dear Folk,

Does anybody know the first use of the term ''idiolect''? I have two
citations from 1948 (B. Bloch in ''Language'' and R.A. Hall in
''Studies in Linguistics''). Are there any earlier citations out
there?

I will be sure to post a summary.

Thanks,
[krk]

Dear Linguists,

Could anyone, please, recommend a thesis to read about turn-taking,
floor, interruption, overlap and minimal responses, preferably in the
United Kingdom?
Thank you.
