The December 2010 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.

http://SpecGram.com/CLX.3/

Included in this issue--a collection of advanced, original, and unique
articles, including: reassurance about the irrelevance of any impending
linguistic big bounce; lingering questions about the Canadian ''Great Quiet
North'' of 2005; a transcript of the 2010 SpecGram Free Form Linguistics
Slam; and recipes for linguistic cocktails--along with the usual
high-quality collection of letters from our readers, cartoons, puzzles,
things you didn't know you didn't know, and more...

Next time (January 2011), we will have another all-new issue of Speculative
Grammarian.

Enjoy!
