Hi Malcolm - Todd Cohen mentioned your web site yesterday, asking if
I had seen it. I hadn't and spent a few minutes this a.m. "having a look."
I'm impressed and I hadn't found a thesaurus or version of Barlett's on
the web until I saw your references! I think I am still in the habit of
using a book rather than attempting to find what I need on the web (perhaps
typical of those born during WW2). Just a note to say it looks good. -

What a terrific web site! I found it while tracking down spelling
hints to help my daughter prepare for the state spelling contest at the
Oregon State Fair. We'll use your lists, if you don't mind. As a teacher
myself, I'm amazed and impressed with your organization. I'm sure your
students will get a lot of practical skills out of your course. Greetings
from Oregon and have a good year! jbowler

This is a great site. I was trying to find a few good sites with
spelling lists for my 6th grade son. I homeschool and he needs the challenge.
Your lists will work great for him. I also loved all the short,concise
list of rules. Thanks again homeschool mom in N.C. from 184.108.40.206
I am a former journalist and present public relations officer and
instructor of PR at a community college. This is a WONDERFUL site and discovery!

Found a link to your site in your message on the ACES discussion
board. Can't help you with your study of universal copy desks, but I can
say I love your page, have bookmarked it and will recommend it to those
in even greater need than me. Nice going, Professor.

I,CliffRke@aol.com, ran across your site while looking on 11/14/99
for the AP Stylebook on line. I plan to return often and in depth, and
to send many others. (I've already begun *that* process. In the summer
of 1971, I left the copy desk of a daily newspaper to go to law school,
thinking that I'd perhaps use my legal education as a working journalist.
As so often happens, I never returned--soon, I'll begin my 14th year as
a trial judge. There are those who cannot understand what a great joy editing
is. Obviously, you do. thanks for the site.

Professor Gibson: Thank you for help you do not know you have provided.
I am designing an editing course for our brand, spankin' new print journalism
program at Concordia College in Moorhead, Minn., and your site has been
helpful. It makes me excited to teach editing; I would love to take this
class. I worked at a daily newspaper for 13 years before I began teaching.
Thanks much; I might be calling with questions. Catherine McMullen from

My son won the first round of his 6th grade Spelling Bee, today.
I 'Asked Jeeves' for spelling lists, and your site was suggested. I enjoyed
exploring it so much, that I almost forgot about the lists! Your site is
fun and very easy to use. I love the humor and the layout. The animation
is great,too. Thanks for the suggested links...better than any search engine
I've found! I'mn sure we'll spend hours exploring those, too. Thank you!

It all started when I began tutoring a 6 year old girl in reading.
My husband and I then began having discussions about the English language,
in general (always dangerous). Then came the "who v. whom" question. Although
I am still parsing your Who/Whom page to grok all the rules (it's been
20 years since we've had to even think about such things), we found the
entire website very entertaining. I will be keeping an eye on the Word
of the Day! I'm ready to sign up for your class! Thank you, Nancy Hannaford
