<div>Check the archives: the last major go-round we had on this was
in November and December of 1999: Nov 24-Dec 3 under the headers,
&quot;First Year Grammar,&quot; &quot;Mounce,&quot; &quot;Mounce's
First Year Grammar&quot; and &quot;Mounce: Enough Already?&quot; As
you may guess there was plenty of discussion of pros and cons of
Mounce from different perspectives. Early in that thread I referred
to one older discussion of April 5-9, 1994, for which you'd need to
look at the older archives at metalabs.unc.</div>
