Re: Double dactyls (fwd)
From: Charles Nicol <>

I believe that the early double dactyl involving the name of Vladimir
Nabokov--from which all later VN dds stem--was printed in *Esquire*
in the early 70s along with several other dds. However, as
one of your correspondents has already pointed out, it involved an
"American" pronunciation of VN's name. Sorry, don't have time to dig
it up from the library.
