Joel Miller's Tetrology and the Tetrastic System (once there, scroll down), unpublished.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 , 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:
- From DNA to ABC (book notice).
- Majority English "dibul" (digital bulletin / blog post) links, 1997–2006 (incomplete, I think). Unfortunately, post titles are not reflected in the file names.
- Majority English dibul links, with titles, #1–#112 (1997-09-04–2000-02-03).
- Majority English home page:
- March 4, 2007.
- January 25, 1998, earliest version on the Wayback Machine.
- "From Grammar to Politics", in retrospect about the Majority English bulletin/blog and its closing.
- Joel Miller's website's home page December 18, 2013 and August 11, 2010.
- Majority English Dibul #68, copied and pasted somewhere.
