many thanks to Henry Churchyard for the speech error. Any others sent
either directly to me (iyo1vafuclamvs) would be much appreciated. Please
give target (if you know it), error, who said it, under what circumstances,
(e.g. on radio, tv, seminar, personal talk, lecture etc), who heard it.

We do hope to have a data bank of errors available some time in the future.
 --------------------------

on IPA fonts. Have just installed ATECH software ipIPA FONTS to
use with Wordstar and with Word for Windows and they are terrific! One
has to first get the Atech Stoftware Powerpak font package which costs
$59 or something and IPA is additional $89 I think but if you can spare the
money or get someone to fund the purchase it works like a dream.

Oh dear, first of all I send a summary very late and then I discover the
summary has an error. The second reference should've read...
