GUEST,Woody England's National Musical-Instrument? (1943* d) RE: England's National Musical-Instrument? 03 Dec 08


I think the problem is that while WAV's use of the term may be technically accurate, there is no doubt that he uses the term deliberately to deceive.

He cites publication of his works in an attempt provide support for his arguments through the implication that others have found it of sufficient worth to spend money. time and effort publishing it. He also cites the supply of same to libraries again to provide a veneer of legitimacy - i.e. his work must be good or why would a library take it? (a question which has been ably answered by Don Firth I think).

So it's not really the terms he uses but rather how they are used.
