Subject: quoting HUMANIST

That subject should be "citing HUMANIST". A fellow medievalist and I
have completed a concordance to the wroks of Robert Henryson. We used
Word Cruncher. A publisher is almost certainly going to bring it out, but
he/they want a rather extended discussion of computers and concordances in
our Introduction. Of course the job of writing about computers falls to
me. The discussion in HUMANIST about concordances---whether they should
be published (obviously I agree with you about this), lemmatization, etc,
And since we used a Kurzweil to get the Henryson on disc, the Intro should
also have discussion of OCR readers.

Now, HUMANIST has had interesting discussions of all this material, but in-
formally, of course. Can that material be cited ? SHOULD that material be
cited ? If so, do you know any established format for citations from
electronic conferences/notesfiles/whatever ?
