The May 2012 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 august journal is now available.
This issue includes many excellent articles, including a fascinating look
at culture and grammar, a look back in time at linguistic art, and a look
at the final installment of the collected wisdom of linguists—along with
the usual collection of letters from our readers, puzzles,
advertisements, and more...

Next time (June 2012), we will have another all-new issue of
Speculative Grammarian.

Enjoy!
