Summary:   Thanks to all those who replied to my query (Linguist 14.677) about
Genie. I was offered interesting ideas, but most important, I received
a mail from Susan Curtiss with up-to-date information about Genie:

''I understand you have asked Prof. Brunetti whether Genie is still
alive. She is indeed still alive, lives in a good board-and-care home,
and is, I hope, happy and thriving... And keep your fingers crossed.
I'm trying to find a way to see her and have some hope that this could
happen some time this year. I've been dreaming of this for years, so
if this should happen it would indeed be a dream (more accurately
''many dreams'') come true.

Susie Curtiss''
