                              This Index contains more than 1,300 columns posted since this site went online in 1995.  For the past twelve years, this index has remained a FREE resource for the net community and has been used by nearly two million readers.

                              If your local newspaper has an online edition, the owners almost certainly charge for access to their archives.  We would rather not do that, but to avoid charging and still maintain this web site we depend on contributions from readers.  If you find this site useful, please consider contributing a small amount or, better yet, subscribing to The Word Detective by E-Mail ($15/year).  Thank you.

                              Index by Date

                              A reader pointed out back in January 1997 that it would be nice to have an index to the columns arranged by the date on which they were originally posted, so that if one were not able to visit these pages for a week or two owing to serious illness or imprisonment in a foreign land (the only acceptable excuses, by the way, verified by a note from the relevant authority in either case, of course), one might be able to catch up all at once, rather than taxing one's noggin trying to remember which nuggets of deathless prose herein one had, as it were, already read. Y'know, I really like that sentence.

                              Anyway, it was a good idea. Unfortunately, after giving the matter some thought, I realized that it was impractical* for me to index batches of columns that had already been posted at that point.

                              Just recently, however, an alert and industrious reader, Deven T. Corzine, took the time to write a script to index all those "lost" issues for us.  Unfortunately, I have no record of exactly when these issues were posted to the web (although they definitely date to 1995 and 1996), so the best we can do at this point is to label them "Posted 1st," etc. 

                              * Because I am lazy.
