Greetings, Linguists!

The February 2014 Special Tenth Digiversary 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.

The editors and publishers of Speculative Grammarian are pleased to announce that the Special Tenth Digiversary Issue (presented in association with Panini Press) of our apparently fairly old journal is now available. This issue features many excellent articles, including a correction to an egregiously mistaken etymology of Timothy from decades ago, a double dose from the SpecGram Archives, another in a long line of articles debating spelling reform, a new proposal for measuring linguistic humor, and the sundriness of things you didn’t know you didn’t know - along with the usual collection of testimonials, limericks, cartoons, book announcements, puzzles, advertisements, and more...

Next time (March 2014), we will have another all-new issue of Speculative Grammarian.
