I seem to recall one publ. by (or under auspices of) the Foreign Service-- I had to look at it in prep for my generals back in late 60s/70s; perhaps it's the one you're mentioning. Dave-- 2 suggestions-- 1. Isn't Ed Keenan in the Calif. system? It's his specialty IIRC 2. Ditto for Matt Pearson, but I don't know where he is these days. Last at Reed. Perhaps he finally got that dream-job writing conlangs for the movies. Ha. Wish he were here!!!
