Query:   HELLO ALL. I'M A FORMER LINGUISTICS STUDENT AND I NOW WRITE A BOOK COLUMN FOR A NEWSPAPER. I'M TRYING TO COME UP WITH SOME BOOKS ON LANGUAGE THAT WOULD APPEAL TO A NON-ACADEMIC AUDIENCE. I'M THINKING OF MAINSTREAM BOOKS THATAREN'T DOPEY -- SOMEWHERE IN THE VICINITY OF WILLIAM SAFIRE OR GEOFFREY NUNBERG. I'D BE VERY APPRECIATIVE IF ANYONE HAS A MOMENT TO RESPOND WITH THEIR FAVORITE BOOKS; IF THEY'RE NEWER TITLES, ALL THE BETTER. THANK YOU SO MUCH!
