Greetings, Linguists!

The February 2018 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 a clarification of confusions among homophonic aphorisms, extraterrestrial contact evidence in English function words, and the release of two new online tools that support advanced roman numerology and orthographic perplexity, respectively—along with the usual collection of letters from our readers, limericks, linguistic propaganda, puzzles, and more...

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.
