  1. thanks from remembering me with a copy of your book about cut-up, which I’m enjoying, initially for its mention of me.

    Edward, can you send me your paper on Ah Pook?


    • Edward S. Robinson says:

      I certainly can, Antonio – if you let me have a contact email to send it to, or drop me a line at e.s.robinson (at) yahoo.co.uk, I’ll be happy to oblige.

    Edward! Perhaps you will see this message. I wanted to remind you that I still want to read your paper(or the unfinished version at least) if you’re willing to send it. (We met at the conference and I asked you for it, but I think you forgot to e-mail me.) In the meantime, I’ve also ordered your book, Shift Linguals, but that will take a few weeks to arrive! Let me know if you’ve lost my e-mail or something!

    Kind regards,
    Joost Damen

      Hi Joost, was great to meet you in Manchester. I haven’t forgotten – it’s just been manic few days. I’m just putting the bibliography together and will be sending it over very soon. Best, Ed.
