Editor for this issue: Danielle St. Jean
We'd like to remind readers that the responses to queries are usually best posted to the individual asking the question. That individual is then strongly encouraged to post a summary to the list. This policy was instituted to help control the huge volume of mail on LINGUIST; so we would appreciate your cooperating with it whenever it seems appropriate.
In addition to posting a summary, we'd like to remind people that it is usually a good idea to personally thank those individuals who have taken the trouble to respond to the query.

Dear LINGUIST List subscribers,
I'm working on an article about endangered languages and wondering whether there are places in the United States - New York, in articular - where more immigrants speak an endangered language than people do back in their homelands. Does this seem plausible? Where should I look?
