Talk:American Dialect Society


New page, created. :) Text from lede taken from beginning part of intro at en.wikipedia page, w:American Dialect Society. Started with 20 sourced quotes: 10 sourced quotes in the Quotes sect, and 10 sourced quotes in the About sect. Cheers, -- Cirt (talk) 05:56, 4 February 2012 (UTC)

Quoted text in lede needs to have a refEdit

Quoted text in lede needs to have a ref. We can't just remove the cite, and then remove the quote marks around the quoted text, that would be copyvio or plagiarism. As such, I've added the quote marks back, and added a direct cite to the organization's website. -- Cirt (talk) 04:31, 5 February 2012 (UTC)

Attempt at compromiseEdit

Good faith attempt at compromise, add back further reading sect, but I reduced size of sect by half. -- Cirt (talk) 18:04, 10 October 2013 (UTC)

Removed "Further reading" sectEdit

I've gone ahead and voluntarily removed the "Further reading" sect, myself, from the page, per community consensus as expressed at Wikiquote:Village Pump. Cheers, -- Cirt (talk) 23:54, 14 October 2013 (UTC)

Removed Cleveland Evans quoteEdit

Evans is not and has never been the president of the American Dialect Society. He has, however, been the president of the American Name Society.
