  • Although the interview suffers from a number of faults—for instance, it is not penetrating or thorough enough, probably because Aman is a better scholar, writer, and editor than interviewer, and it contains gratuitous information about the interviewer who cannot resist blowing his own horn—it is at least an attempt at documenting that has not, to my knowledge, been done before in the field of linguistics.

  • The present volume, only one year in arrears, includes an interview by Aman with Lillian Mermin Feinsilver, an authority on Yiddish and author of The Taste of Yiddish . At the end of the interview is a good bibliography of Feinsilver's work.

  • It is unlike Dr. Aman to cloak his subject—dirty language—under the euphemism “verbal aggression”: he and most of the authors of the articles appearing in Maledicta let it all hang out; some, however, tuck it away neatly and write under a pseudonym.

  • Mrs. Feinsilver has an interesting article in this volume, too, “Comment on Aman's `A Yiddish Minnie-Legend' and the Romanization of Yiddish.”

  • I do think that Aman contributes something important to the linguistic literature, and I think he ought to view a bit more seriously (and less rancorously) the opportunities accorded him by his experience with these powerful, private parts of the language to pursue a theme of analysis of its impact and why and how it carries so much weight, both denotatively and connotatively.
