FYI Body: Greetings Linguists!

The April 2010 special Fieldwork 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.


Included in this issue- a collection of far out, fresh, and fieldworky
articles, including: a squib on PIE fieldwork, a list of ways to pay for
important fieldwork, a survey of fieldwork done on campus, and part one of
a guide to preparation and packing for the prudent fieldworker- along with
the usual high-quality collection of ads, puzzles, and more...

Next time (May 2010), we will have a second all-new special issue of
Speculative Grammarian dedicated to Fieldwork.
