Linguistica ad hominem

We all know that the most interesting thing in linguistics is not the subject matter, but the personalities of the practitioners. Linguistica ad hominem is devoted to criticism and critique, but we don’t want to hear about your opponents’ theories. Go for the throat!

Linguistica ad hominem: “Forget the data; send us the dope.”

Linguistica ad hoc

Most linguists pretend that their analyses are motivated. Let’s give up that pretense and jump to whatever conclusions we feel like.

Linguistica ad hoc: “Our articles rely on logical leaps.”

Linguistica ad nauseum

Most topics in linguistics don’t receive the breadth of coverage they deserve. An article or two, maybe a doctoral dissertation, and that’s it. Linguistica ad nauseum is devoted to exploring every subject in depth. We promise to print at least 25 follow-up articles and comments for every new topic we publish.

Linguistica ad nauseum: “Keep talkingmaybe you’ll hit on something meaningful.”

Linguistica ad infinitum

We’re fed up with the mini-essays that pass for scholarship in the big-name journals. It’s time for a publication that really digs into the details. Linguistica ad infinitum is devoted to publishing articles of no less than 600 pages. Bring on the real content!

Linguistica ad infinitum: “Publishing the longest articles in the field.”

Linguistica ad ad

Let’s face itlinguistics publications can hardly pay for themselves nowadays. We at Psammeticus Press are committed to advancing the interests of our stockholder, which means making money. Lots of it. To that end, we bring you Linguistica ad ad, featuring an 85-15 advertising-to-content ratio. We promise to work in at least one content-based article every time.

Linguistica ad ad: “The bottom line never looked better.”
