One more to the add to the list--

I once wrote a conference paper considering Don Bialostosky's use of  
Bakhtin from the standpoint of Burke's dialectic of constitutions. At  
this conference, Don and I were co-panelists.

Paper's title: "Dialogics--A New Constitution for Literary Criticism?"

The paper is available for download at my site at academia.edu.

Good hearing from all of you--

Bob
