The singular of CRITERIA are (sic:-)) CRITERION. And that's a phenomenON, ain't it! Further, I'd sure like to see the word FEWER re-enter the English language. Fewer, not less, is for "things you can count," like people or calories. [Gads, I do sound like a teacher, and a picky one at that.] Then there's the spelling of cohousing; I actually enjoy the various notions of how to spell it, perhaps because the word and the concept are always evolving Someone should stop me when I try to write E-mail at 1:40 AM! Re: spiritualism--or is it spirituality--in cohousing groups. I am really attracted by the prinicples (what are those shared value statements actually called?) of Unitarian/Universalism. I 'm not proselytizing or even suggesting that any given community would ever necessarily want to take a spiritual or religious direction or even celebrate any religious or semi religious occasions, but thouse who do want to do so might check out UU publications etc, since Unitarian/Univeralism is committed to freedom of religious belief and action, and has no dogma or credal requirement. Do any other UUs out there in coho land want to talk about this? Joani Blank
