Well, Marco.  I'm still around and based on the flurry
of activity last week, there were a few others lurking
in the shadows.  As long as I'm still able to reply
to questions, this list won't become extinct.
BTW, do you recall a discussion I began about
the dialect Haverhillian?

Hello, Gerry!

I see no sign of life here, and
I will probably leave this list.
If you have any topic to discuss
please post it in Language_extinction.

Best wishes
