I Ate’nt Dead

A quick and long-overdue update: I’ve been a couple of months at a new Day Job that included a long commute for a while and sucked up the energy (and time) I previously had for linguablogging. Now that I’ve settled in and gone mostly-virtual, I’m prepared to fire off a few more of the posts I’ve had half-formed in the queue, and normal transmissions should resume shortly.

In the meantime, it’s been a busy summer for language – far busier than I could hope to catch up with now. But most exciting (to me, at least) is the news of Kory Stamper’s forthcoming book – which should be out just in time to help you recover from next year’s National Grammar Day. Huzzah!
