Title: Last Call: Discussion on HEL in B.A.s
Submitter: Stefan Dollinger
Description: Dear linguusts -

As replies are still trickling in concerning the role of HEL (History of
the English language), resp. the role of diachronic linguistics in
linguistics and language curricula in general, allow me to inform you that,
should you still wish to contribute*, the check-in desk is open until Wed,
19 April 2006 for your contribution.

So far, we've received, sometimes multiple, input from the following
countries: CH, D, DK, HUN, JP, UK and USA. I would like to especially
invite colleagues from other countries to contribute their opinions.

I'd also like to thank all of you who have contributed so far. I'll submit
a summary (incl. acknowledgements) by 21 April.

Best wishes,
Stefan Dollinger
