    Operating on the idea that regional economic vitality requires strong air travel connections to the rest of the world, many thought-leaders and regional officials are pursuing the idea of an "aerotropolis". The aerotropolis would use Detroit Metro and Willow Run Airports as anchors for the economy, assuming that, if the transportation links are there, the economy will follow. ("Phase 3: profit!")

    LA Times reportage: "'There are . . . if you will, mini-benchmarks where things are happening,' U.S. Ambassador Ryan Crocker said Aug. 21. Crocker cited Anbar province, west of Baghdad, where violence has dropped substantially since Sunni Arab leaders there began working with U.S. and Iraqi security forces."

  • "It's not even on Google" -- better try the library then.

    Polypopton is a figure of speech involving repeated words derived from the same root; try Corbett, Edward 'Classical rhetoric for the modern student' Oxford University Press 1971. I don't know how long the term has been around, but that's the earliest of (two) references I have that use the word. It's not common, probably since it sounds so funny -- prime wordie fodder.
