From: "Prof.Dr. Bernd Heine" <ama01aix370.rrz.Uni-Koeln.DE>
Subject: New journal (STUF)

SPRACHTYPOLOGIE & UNIVERSALIENFORSCHUNG (STUF)
is a newly found journal that has been designed as an international forum
for scholars working in the field(s) of language typology and language
 universals.
>From spring 1993, STUF will appear quarterly. STUF is edited by Ulrike Claudi
(Cologne), Franz Dotter (Klagenfurt), Ronald Loetzsch (Berlin), Anita Steube
(Leipzig), Thomas Stolz (Bochum), and Wolfgang U. Wurzel (Berlin). The
editors will be supported by an international advisory board.
STUF is interested in data-oriented as well as theory-relevant papers dealing
 with linguistic phenomena from a typological and/or universalist perspective.
Such a perspective can be of a synchronic or diachronic nature;
 psycholinguistic, ethnolinguistic, or sociolinguistic approaches to the
 field(s) are also
welcome.
Languages of publication are English, French, and German.

Message 5: trick or treat?

Date: Mon, 02 Nov 92 16:34:36 CDtrick or treat?
From: stan kulikowski ii <STANKULIUWF.BITNET>
Subject: trick or treat?


 i wonder if anyone else has noticed that few kids understand the expression
'trick or treat' to be a form of extortion. for the last several years i
have been asking the little bogums at the door, "what is your trick?" or
expanding "why should i give you a treat?"

 most often i get nothing but blank stares back. when i say, "OK, i will
take the trick," i often get explanations about how i am supposed to give
them candy because they are little kids.

 "'trick or treat' is what you say when you want candy."

 a few of them try to make stupid faces or do silly dances, claiming that is
their trick and i should pay them candy for doing those things. in the last
4 years, i have had 1 kid in about 90 say they would let the air out of my
tires. no one remembers the traditional soaping of the windows.

 it seems we may be seeing the concern for safety remove the meanings of
halloween to a purely commerical beggars' night. maybe next year we can
prepare a little informal study if you are interested.
