Or meaning #3: the demon that tortures British linguists in hell.  :-) --Larry Sanger 08:33, 14 August 2007 (CDT)

At my university, the main linguistics course was shortened to HELL (Honours English Language and Linguistics). A senior academic admitted to me that this had been a deliberate decision many years earlier, just for a laugh.
By the way, the reason I put this disambiguation here and not simply at Baal is because I anticipate that an article on these demons will one day appear, and they - by virtue of their demonism - will be better-known than BAAL. John Stephenson 21:29, 14 August 2007 (CDT)
