Abstract: This is the first issue of Language in Society to go to press under my editorship, though most of the contents of this issue were edited by Jane Hill. I would like to thank Professor Hill for making the editorial transition as smooth as it has been. She has been ready to help and advise at a moment's notice. Readers of the journal, too, owe Professor Hill an enormous debt of gratitude for her work as editor. I hope that Language in Society will continue to be as interesting and up to date during my tenure, but Jane Hill will be a hard act to follow.
