        Subject: addenda with apologies

[This was written before reading Manfred's note on Dino Buzzetti. 
An enormous loss indeed! --WM]

Apologies for a greater lapse than manual inspection of grammatical
errors. Too little coffee this a.m. The bigger one is absence of
bibliographic information for any who might be interested in follow up
my references:

Garland Cannon, "Abbreviations and Acronyms in English Word-Formation".
American Speech 64 2 (Summer, 1989), 99-127.

Paula López Rúa, 'On the structure of acronyms and neighbouring
categories: a prototype-based account'. English Language and Linguistics
6.1 (2002): 31-60.

Additional references most welcome.
