In case you haven’t been keeping score, the extremely swanky Encyclopedia of Language and Linguistics seems to be the most expensive linguistics e-book in the world. As of early 2017, it’s $11,850. For an e-book. An e-book. Clearly someone paid a little attention in their behavioral economics class and figured out that people infer quality from price.
We at SpecGram have offered an enormous, luxurious, tenure-sized 8.5 x 11 inch book with the finest faux Corinthian and/or Venusian “leather” “finish”
We were suckers.
So now we’re going to take a virtual page from the ELL (at $1.32 a pop!) and prove that our e-book is the best because it’s the most expensive
You know you want it
