What of these other fours?
 Post appears BELOW Table of Contents.
 This blog focuses on similarities between others' four-folds, tetrads, tetrachotomies, and mine, and includes links to online information on others’ fours in their own terms. It results from overgrowth of an old post at The Tetrast "What of these other fours?".

Joel Miller's Tetrology and the Tetrastic System

Joel Miller's Tetrology and the Tetrastic System (once there, scroll down), unpublished. In the meantime, he recommends From DNA to ABC (UPDATE: link dead, see below) and is willing to send it to me for a $20 bill in the mail to him in Sweden; I trust him but I wonder whether he understands about the advanced state of thievery within the U.S. postal system. I have to get around to ordering his book in some more usual way; after all, he used the word “tetrastic” before I even thought of it! (Update: He now has PayPal.) Anyway, his division of the concrete world into atomic, chemical, biological, and human systems may fit well with my four-way division; I just need to learn, one of these days, why he does it.

His “Majority English: the dialect of the non-native speaker”, which you’ll see if you click on From DNA to ABC above [well, not anymore], is the good-humored title of what seems a pleasant blog for those — non-native and native English-speakers alike — interested in the ins and outs of good English-language usage, an effort generally against a worldwide balkanization of English.

Update August 2, 2015: Miller's website (BenTarZ) is gone but much of it is preserved post-vitally at the Wayback Machine:
