I put this question to a colleague of mine, and she found the paper-back copy in the department, and "according to the intro to the festscrift (p.ix), Fom Pop was Thomas Priestly". We have no idea if he's still around, in linguistics or this world. ========================================================================= Thomas Wier "I find it useful to meet my subjects personally, Dept. of Linguistics because our secret police don't get it right University of Chicago half the time." -- octogenarian Sheikh Zayed of 1010 E. 59th Street Abu Dhabi, to a French reporter.
