This announcement is being made only to the discerning patrons of Speculative Grammarian.
We proudly announce the formation of a new publishing house, Panini
Press, solely devoted to the advancement of knowledge in the noble field
Panini Press promises to offer only the finest in linguistic
publications. We promise never to stoop to the level of so-called
academic publishers such as Psammeticus Press (informally known in our
offices as “Psammeti-Cur Press,” or more simply as “those dogs”). No vanity
press identity here—Panini Press will accept only manuscripts of the
most praiseworthy nature, completely unlike the modus operandi of the
so-called “editor” of Psammeticus Press, H.D. Onesimus, whose sole goal
appears to be robbing Linguistics of the glory it deserves.
Obstinately maintaining the absolute highest standards in the field,
Panini Press promises to return Linguistics to its rightful place at the
pinnacle of the intellectual sciences.
Capable scholars with a meaningful contribution to make will find
themselves and their worthy manuscripts warmly welcomed in our editorial
offices. Drivel of the sort that can be found in the catalogs of
Psammeticus Press will be summarily burned upon receipt.
Please submit manuscripts to us in care of this august periodical, whose
management and editorship we hold in the utmost highest regard and esteem.❦पा
As our initial foray into returning to Linguistics its rightful glory, we are proud to present the first, carefully selected installment of our Antimetabole Linguistics Enterprise, The Historicity of Texts and the Textuality of History, by the two noted scholars of historical sociopragmatic discourse analysis, Edgartina Olláphersen and Olafrinia Etkarzön, to be published in 2009.
The more astute reader will have noticed the obvious similarity between our Antimetabole Linguistics Enterprise and the Chiasmus Linguistics Project of Psammeticus Press (those mutts). We had been approached by several eminent, classically trained scholars who had briefly considered contributing their work to the CLP, but were put off by the incorrect, though vulgarly common, use of chiasmus.
Immediately understanding their desire not to sully their hard-earned reputations by dealing with a publishing house capable of such sophomoric errors, we launched our own, correctly named enterprise.
We look forward to continuing to serve the small but rarefied population of discerning scholars wishing to publish their important works in Linguistics.❦पा
