The May 2003 issue of the Newsletter of the American Dialect Society, downloadable in pdf format here (192K), details the programs of the four regional meetings of the Society, to be held this October and November. Among other matters, it also issues a final call for proposals for the ADS Annual Meeting in January, announces new books by ADS members, invites help with obscure words for the Dictionary of American Regional English, and has a report from our delegate to the American Council of Learned Societies.
