Subject: special issues

Names, the Journal of the American Name Society, is
planning two special issues for late 1995 or early
1996. The first is on 'Computers in Onomastic
Research,' and the second 'Statistics in Onomastic
Research.' If you would like to contribute to one (or
both) of these special issues, send a 1-page idea paper
to the editor at the address below. Nothing has to be
definite at this time, but I would expect that both
issues would deal with problems faced in name research
and how computers (and statistics) could contribute to
solving them.

I put a similar notice on the American Name Society
list and found that there was wide-spread interest in
both areas. So if you would like to contribute, send the
idea paper to me shortly, by either hard copy, fax or

(make sure you type zero rather than o after TB)

I hope to hear from people from a variety of disciplines
who have an interest in names. Please let me know if you
have questions or comments.
