Not all letters of intent may be considered when they are originally scheduled on this cover letter. The date of posting of the LoI, date of receipt of the Laurel packet, or other factors may delay consideration of certain letters of intent. Additionally, some letters of intent received may not have been scheduled because the administrative requirements (receipt of the forms packet, receipt of the necessary fees, et cetera) have not yet been met.

REMINDER: Until all administrative requirements are met, the letter may not be scheduled.

From Pelican: Changes to the Alternate Titles List

This month we considered a proposal by Loyall to remove the title Baron from the list of alternate titles for Turkish. She argues:

As a Turkish word, <Baron> appears to be a borrowing of the modern English term. I have found no evidence that it was used in Turkish in our period.

A number of other Turkish titles which were found to be modern were removed from the list of alternate titles on the November 2007 LoAR; Baron was accidentally omitted from Loyall's original proposal, and we now remedy this mistake by removing it.
