The October 2013 issue of Speculative Grammarian - the premier scholarly journal featuring research in the neglected field of satirical linguistics - is now available online for your browsing pleasure.

The editors and publishers of Speculative Grammarian are pleased to announce that another issue of our venerable journal is now available. This issue features many excellent articles, including a lovely Portuguese rizzoto recipe, a celebration of an orthographic hero, another installment from the SpecGram Archives, and the unabatingness of things you didn’t know you didn’t know - along with the usual collection of limericks, cartoons, puzzles, and more...

Next time (November 2013), we will have another all-new issue of Speculative Grammarian.

Enjoy!
