Some of the sociology phrases, such as "non-normative family arrangements" are drawn directly from the demography seminar at Chicago, which I would often attend in my pre-Heckman graduate student days.
When I was at the University of Maastricht a few years ago for a seminar visit, one of the people I met with was a sociologist. She had read the phrase book!
Addendum: the phrase book was written in the late 1980s. The reference to getting engaged to a sociologist was a reference to my co-author, Kermit Daniel, who was at the time in fact engaged to a sociologist.
