Wherein we announce some upcoming live events! Hello, and welcome to Linguistics After Dark! I’m Sarah, and this not really an episode—it’s another teaser for next week’s live show at CrossingsCon: Slipping Sideways. At 7pm New York time, Tuesday August 3rd, we’ll be doing a live episode with real questions from real audience members! That’s you!

Wherein we talk a LOT.
Wherein we frequently get off topic and get angry at Les Immortels.
Wherein we make wugability happen and invoke rule three.
Wherein we discuss how linguistics is everywhere but linguists are nowhere, and introduce the concept of the unsolicited etymology swear jar.
Our very first episode, answering real language questions from real listeners! And boy do we live up to our no-research policy. (What is the truth about bubblers? TEACH THE CONTROVERSY!)
