E-mail this message to a friend

Spread the good word throughout your dense social
networks folks! Sociolinguistics has impressed
us with its charm and wit (and, well, money!)
to become the high-prestige variant!

Yes, Syntax has yielded it's C-Command to
the Sociolinguists--for now! But will Syntax
repeat its daring move alpha?

Don't you rest on your laurels!
Don't languish, linguists!
--there are still 17 hours of
our challenge left!

Don't make any superfluous
presuppositions about the victor of
this race yet! Donate now!
