Summary:   Regarding query:

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

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

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
