Summary:   REGARDING QUERY: HTTP://WWW.LINGUISTLIST.ORG/ISSUES/16/16-586.HTML#2

THANK YOU TO THE TWO LINGUIST SUBSCRIBERS WHO RESPONDED TO MY QUERY OF FEB.
27: IS ''LANGUAGE BROKERING'' A SUFFICIENTLY IMPORTANT RESEARCH TOPIC IN
LINGUISTICS TO REQUEST THAT THE LIBRARY OF CONGRESS ESTABLISH AN OFFICIAL
SUBJECT HEADING FOR IT? THE TWO RESPONDERS WERE:

MADALENA CRUZ-FERREIRA
NANCY FRISHBERG

ONE LISTER FELT ''I HAVEN'T GOT MUCH TO SAY ABOUT THE LIBRARY HEADING ...
EXCEPT THAT IT DOES SEEM TO FILL A NICHE OF ITS OWN'', WHILE THE OTHER
FELT, ''THIS IS NOT A NECESSARY TERM IN CATALOGUING, YET. PERHAPS IT'S
COMING INTO GREATER ATTENTION, I CONSIDER THIS ... A SPECIALCASE OF
INTERPRETING.''

FROM THESE TWO REPLIES, AND THE SMALL NUMBER OF THEM, I CONCLUDE FOR NOW
THAT LINGUIST SUBSCRIBERS DO NOT RECOMMEND STRONGLY THAT THE LIBRARY OF
CONGRESS ESTABLISH AN OFFICIAL SUBJECT HEADING.
