A New Classic Speculative Grammarian Online
Message 1: A New Classic Speculative Grammarian Online
From: Trey Jones <TreySpecGram.com>
Subject: A New Classic Speculative Grammarian Online
Speculative Grammarian, the premier scholarly journal featuring research in
the neglected field of satirical linguistics, is proud to present a special
classic issue of another of our sister publications (actually, more of a
probably-likeable if-only-you-got-to-see-them-more-often cousin
publication): Babel (no, not *that* Babel--this is the humorous one).
Babel, Volume I, Number 3, September 1990:
This issue blows away the mists of time, resuscitating a number of classic
articles, including a ground-breaking refutation of the ground-breaking
report on an unlikely language of the Andes seen in the previous issue, the
results of a decades-long experimental examination of the Sapir-Whorf
hypothesis, a look at the ramifications of so-called spelling reform for
practitioners of the dark arts, and an admission of scandal at the highest
levels of the Babel editorial board--along with the usual selection of
other high-quality articles and letters from readers.
As always, SpecGram is also looking for new submissions!
