Once more, we are very grateful to have the following accounts of a rich range of reference works currently in preparation. Don McCreary has contributed a fascinating picture of the development of the Dawgspeak! project at the University of Georgia, and George Goebel gives us a first glimpse of the post-publication life of DARE, ‘beyond Zydeco.’ There are reports on the revision of the Dictionary of Canadianisms on Historical Principles, and the creation of a bilingual digital dictionary for Cayuga.
