FYI: All-New SpecGram (July 2014) Online
The July 2014 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 guide to thirteen untranslatable words, a report on a statistically significant dream in R, a chronotopic item from the archives, and the abundancy of things you didn’t know you didn’t know—along with the usual collection of letters from our readers, limericks, cartoons, puzzles, interviews, and more...
Next time (mid-July 2014), we will have a special summer reading issue.
Editor-in-Chief, Speculative Grammarian
The SpecGram Book is now available as an ebook, too!
