FYI: All-New SpecGram (August 2014) Online
The August 2014 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 august journal is now available. This issue features many excellent articles, including a thorough debunking of the myth of “speech”, some literary contest winners (not even three decades late), a warning about the potential dangers of SpecGram itself, and the profuseness of things you didn’t know you didn’t know - along with the usual collection of letters from our readers, breaking news, limericks, puzzles, interviews, and more...
Next time (September 2014), we will have a special retrospective issue of Speculative Grammarian.
Editor-in-Chief, Speculative Grammarian
The SpecGram Book is now available as an ebook, too!
