far, then.

the Trouble with Quantitative Studies, at

I have also read the discussion on this list at
http://helmer.aksis.uib.no/corpora/2003-2/0097.html, which is how I found
out about this group.

Again, thank you everyone for responding, I appreciate it very much. I am
right now in the process of trying to order the books recommended here, and
reading what is available online. Thanks so much.
