P.S.: We're still looking for new contributors--we're seeking witty,erudite papers in satirical linguistics that demonstrate a comprehensiveknowledge of the field of linguistics as a whole, a subtle wit, and arefined sense of written language. However, as those kinds of papersare pretty hard to come by, we're *accepting* papers that aremoderately clever, can be edited into some passable form, and don'trely too heavily on bodily function humor.
