Message 1: Call For Papers in Satirical Linguistics
Date: 08-Nov-2005
From: Trey Jones <TreySpecGram.com>
Subject: Call For Papers in Satirical Linguistics

Speculative Grammarian--the premier scholarly journal featuring research in
the neglected field of satirical linguistics--is issuing a call for papers.
Satirical Linguistics is a meta-field that covers everything from Abkhasian
to Heinrich Zimmer. Everything linguistic is fair game--uh, that
is--acceptable subject matter.

SpecGram is seeking witty, erudite papers in satirical linguistics that
demonstrate a comprehensive knowledge of the field of linguistics as a
whole, a subtle wit, and a refined sense of written language.

However, as those kinds of papers are pretty hard to come by, SpecGram is
*accepting* papers that are moderately clever, can be edited into some
passable form, and don't rely too heavily on bodily function humor.

Everyone who has ever been a grad student has written some clever little
piece of fluff that made them laugh. Now your own little bit of fluff can
pad your CV. On the other hand, if you aren't sure how your peers and
colleagues will react to your flight of linguistic fancy, our Author
Protection Program allows you to publish under a well-protected pseudonym.

Finally, what is the real reason you'd want to submit to SpecGram? Fame?
Glory? Adulation of your peers? You won't get much of that around here! The
best reason is because there is a little voice inside you telling you that
you must! If the other little voices don't shout that one down, then you
are a prime candidate for publication.

Submissions may be sent directly to SubmissionsSpecGram.com.
