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 that aren'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!
