Introducing Babel: Free Sample Issue Out Now!

Babel is a new quarterly print magazine, covering a wide range of topics in
linguistics. It brings together cutting-edge research in language studies,
presented in a fun and digestible form. With Prof. David Crystal as Linguistic
Consultant, and a spirited team of global language academics behind it, Babel
promises to broaden your linguistic horizons.

Visit the Babel website (http://www.babelzine.com) to download a PDF of the
free sample issue, or contact us to receive your free copy in the post.

Regular features in Babel include articles on new research (such as politeness
in Chinese), biographies of leaders in the field (such as H. Paul Grice),
reviews of general interest language books, as well as language games and
quizzes.

Subscription for 2013 is also available through the Babel website
(http://www.babelzine.com) and includes four glossy copies of Babel magazines
per year, delivered to your door. The first full issue is due for publication
in February 2013 and will be 48 pages of language-lovers' lore!

We are sure that academics, students, language professionals and laypeople
alike will find Babel a great resource to engage with, be inspired by, and
keep up to date with contemporary research in linguistics.

Get Involved!
If you want to write for Babel, please reply to editorsbabelzine.com with

get in touch with further questions.

To help us get Babel off the ground, please forward this email to all your
contacts, both academic and non-academic. Babel may be especially useful in
explaining to laypeople what you do, if - like many linguists - you find your
path in life baffles people! On request, we can send out free copies of the
sample issue and promotional flyers. Spread the word... Babel is out now!
