Message 1: early citation of retroactive NOT

Date: Mon, 5 Apr 93 11:58:24 EDTearly citation of retroactive NOT
From: "Bruce E. Nevin" <bnevinccb.bbn.com>
Subject: early citation of retroactive NOT

The `Devil's Advocate' column in the April 1993 isue of UNIX Review
(p. 116) closes with a discussion of retroactive `not' which cites
a 1905 story "Pigs is Pigs" by Ellis Parker Butler, in
_American Magazine_ (Colver Publishing House). The quotation:
"Cert'nly, me dear frind Flannery. Delighted! _Not!_"
(Spelling "frind" is in original.)

Perhaps the speaker is intended to be an Irish immigrant, and if so
mightn't that provide a clue as to origin?

As I recall, I think the earliest citation posted here previously
was 1912, posted by Larry Hyman?
