[Corpora-List] is there an archived version of Robert de Beaugrande's original website somewhere on the internet?

hi terence

yes, i think you're right about the website... :(

i liked the meticulous referencing and rigorous logic of Robert's work... as well as the fact that he never 'pulled his punches'! :)

I think it's more likely that Beaugrande only rented the site that bears his name for 3 or 5 years after his untimely death. The Wayback Machine is great. Looking at the various "captures" if Beaugrande's website makes me realize again what a frequent visitor I once was there.

What a marvelous thinker we lost in Robert!

hi all i've been trying to locate Beaugrande's old website, which had most of his works available for free... everywhere i look now seems to link me to beaugrande.com<http://beaugrande.com>, which seems to be an extremely aggressive commercial site... :(

I specifically wanted to reference his Linguistic Theory chapter on Firth...

but in view of his stated wish to distribute all his books free (in 2002?) i am concerned that someone else (publishers?) may have taken down his original website?

any information gratefully accepted!

best Ramesh
