I'm going to try out that Page 99 thing! I feel like getting 'lit' tonight, bibliobibuli style.

Oh, and let us know if you think the page 99 test works please? Is page 99 a good representation of the whole?

LOVE Alogotransiphobia! Though I feel that if I am caught ANYWHERE without something to read.

Yes! I was hoping there'd be a term that wasn't so specific to transport, but he let me down. I plan to use this indiscriminately instead. :)
Does he give Chaucer a mention?

Yes, but again, not at the level you'd expect given the number of words he is credited with. I think the author might have tried to focus on more 'modern' authors (making it easier to get himself in there maybe?) and terms. I think too he was trying to make sure as many names were mentioned as possible because none of them were repeated too often (Shakespeare might have topped the mentions at 4 or 5..)
