teach the way language changes along with sociocultural change? Do you
bring in current linguistic problems, such as the changes in the words
for themselves that African-Americans have made, as their consciousness
about themselv es has changed, e.g., from Negro, to black, to
Afro-American, toAfrican-American, and now possibly back to "black." Or
the feminist attemptto eliminate excluding, androcentric words like "man"
"mankind," and many others. Ruby Rohrlich
