Contributors List

The Phrontistery has been in existence since 1996 - just a minute slice of time compared to, say, the history of the English language, but a veritable aeon in the history of the Internet. Over that time, I have received countless notes of support and encouragement (too many to recognize here). Of these, however, a smaller but not insignificant fraction have made meaningful contributions to the Phrontistery, adding new words or suggesting needed corrections. Without their help, the Phrontistery would not be what it is today. First among these would have to be my wife, Julia, who came into my life after the Phrontistery was already in existence and has come to accept me nonetheless. The people mentioned below (by name or nickname) have also made contributions: Donors have made a monetary contribution through Paypal, while Contributors have made one or more additions or corrections to the site. If you would like your name removed for any reason, please let me know.

March 2006: Unfortunately, I have been unable to maintain this page to my satisfaction over the past year, due to commitments of work and family. Accordingly, I will no longer be updating the Contributors section of this page, although I will continue to update the Donors section. Please accept my apologies if you have made a suggestion of a new word or corrected an error and your name does not appear here - and please accept my sincere thanks for your work, without which the Phrontistery would not be what it is today!
