The May 2011 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.
Included in this jinky issue--mad hardcore articles, including an
investigation into cryptolexicography, an explication of reduplicated
dinosaurs, observations concerning a mystery manuscript, and an
accumulation of things you didn't know you didn't know--along with the
usual high-quality collection of letters from our readers, cartoons,
puzzles, and more...
Next time (June 2011), we will have another all-new issue of Speculative
Managing Editor, Speculative Grammarian
P.S.: We're still looking for new contributors--we're 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, we're *accepting* papers that are moderately
clever, can be edited into some passable form, and don't rely too heavily
on bodily function humor. More information is available here at
Linguistic Field(s): General Linguistics
This Year the LINGUIST List hopes to raise $67,000. This money will go to help

The LINGUIST List is under the umbrella of Eastern Michigan University and as
such can receive donations through the EMU Foundation, which is a registered
501(c) Non Profit organization. Our Federal Tax number is 38-6005986. These

Many companies also offer a gift matching program, such that they will match

EMU Foundation fills in and returns to your employer. This is generally a simple
administrative procedure that doubles the value of your gift to LINGUIST, without
costing you an extra penny. Please take a moment to check if your company
