        These are links that have accumulated on the Home Page over the years until they threatened to crowd out the important stuff.  Many are quite useful!

Strength of claims.  H. P. Grice's "Maxims" for ordinary language communication

alphaDictioanry.com--an alphabetized list of words every college senior should know how to use and understand, with etymologies (where it came from--essential to use) and cautions about similar but different words with which they can be confused, important for the learner.  To write better, you need better and more words.

The World Wide Words site--another vocabulary development site, less well-organized than alphaDictionary but with more obscure and rare words.
