Not the manual, Marjorie. It is a very new publication. I like
to think that it is a response to a letter I wrote to Publications
& Research Committee suggesting it but I doubt if I was the only
one - but it shows they do listen.

AFAIK, it is based on a glossary that John Drewry developed while
he was Convenor of P&R to help the committee "translate" dances
received into a common terminology. I haven't got a copy yet but
was planning to pick one up at the AGM next weekend.

(A propos of the which - the AGM - who's all going?)
