Greetings Linguists!

The July 2006 'Canadian Edition' of Speculative Grammarian--the premier
scholarly journal featuring research in the neglected field of satirical
linguistics--is now available online for your browsing pleasure.


(We are releasing this issue a bit early to make sure it is out in time for
Canada Day--July 1st!)

Included in this issue--breaking news on the coming aphasic flu; research
inspired by recent evidence of dolphin language; a new LingDoku puzzle; and
your next dose of both Metalleus and Claude Searsplainpockets; along with
the usual high-quality articles, letters from our readers, and more...

Next time (August 2006), we will continue reproducing the classic satirical
linguistics anthology Lingua Pranca.

A note to mention that I have now agreed to give the Child Language Survey
materials, whose availability I advertised on the Linguist List in a recent
posting, to the Lancaster University corpus linguistics group. With their
long corpus experience and links to schoolteaching and language-skills
training I believe this is an ideal home for the resource; I am sorry to
disappoint others who have been in touch. (I shall be writing to them
