    Jill,
    Reseau makes the abstracts are available in English and in French. And there is the option of purchasing individual articles. And I’m sure your French will hold up nicely.

    I bought the whole volume, so will be looking forward to receiving it in hte mamil – and yes, I’m sure I’ll be able to figure it out. So when I was ordering it, they kept asking for my “mÈl”, and insisted I wasn’t doing it right until I gave them my email address. Is that kind of a new word for “email”? MÈl. Sort of cool.

    MÈl: it’s really just an attempt to spell “mail” ‡ la franÁaise and without the

    nobody really seems to use. It does give the rather nice word pourriel though
    which is a combination of pourri and courriel and means spam.

    Ah, yes, I’ve found courriel in the dictionary – and I like pourriel. So mÈl is fairly common then?
