Greetings, Linguists!

The March 2016 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 another issue of our esteemed journal is now available. This issue offers many excellent features, including an operatic illustration of an exemplary experimental academician of etymology, argots, orality, etc.; a gnomic higher-order syntactico-theological theory of grammar; and a scavenger hunt (with a bigger, better, bookier bounty)—along with the usual collection of letters from our readers, insightful advice, breaking news, student pearls, limericks, cartoons, self-definers, book reviews, advertisements, and more...

Next time (April 2016), we will have another all-new issue of Speculative Grammarian.

P.S.: We’re always 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.
