Dear David,
    I think you have a point. HSS's name itself has become part of the history, and I'd imagine that Vivian and Paul would have been happy if the name was to stay tel quel.
    Since you congratulate me on the success of the SiHoLS series, I may as well use the occasion to show off the volumes that have thus far appeared in my general + historical linguistics series.
    All the best, Konrad

Dear All

  The exchange of views has been very positive, with some constructive suggestions about how the name might better reflect the scope and perspective of our Society’s activities. However, it seems to me that there is a strong overall consensus in favour of preserving the present name of the Society, on a variety of independent but mutually supporting criteria.

  For my own part, many considerations notwithstanding, I am minded to withdraw my own proposal that the name be modified.

  Would anyone care to second the suggestion that (even without having concluded a bellum in any strict sense of the term) we maintain the status quo as regards the Society’s name?

David

PS. Congratulations to Konrad on the success of the SiHoLS series.
