Greetings, Linguists!

The November 2019 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 rumination on how a subtle shift in the analysis of Chinese phonology can lead to a radical reïnterpretation of the alleged “facts”, a reflection on the intricacies of using several pseudonymous-yet-identic noms de plume, and an endeepened pondering on the predicament of the predicate—along with the usual collection of letters from our readers, insightful advice, breaking news, limericks, reasons not to study linguistics, book announcements, linguistickish 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.
