Special Supplemental Letter from the Editor
It is no surprise to find SpecGram and Psammeticus Press (“Publishing anything that’s too long for Speculative Grammarian”) at the forefront of linguistics; and the special monograph you have before you—detailing the rich and varied history of sentence diagramming techniques—is no exception.
This time, however, we’ve taken the forefront to a whole nother meta-linguistic level. This monograph represents the bleeding edge of an emerging trend in linguistic academia: the micro-dissertation. Young scholar and rising star Nattapoŋ Yunloŋ Seuŋyoŋ has blazed a trail that many future linguists are likely to follow. Rather than having slaved for the better part of a decade over a hellaciously detailed (read, boring) dissertation that no one, not even the relevant dissertation committee, will actually read, the newly minted Dr. Nattapoŋ has instead completed the dissertation requirments for the doctoral degree from l’École de SpecGram, Bouvetøya, with the aptly named “Modern and Historical Graphical Representations of Structural Relationships in Spoken and Written English Sentential Utterances”, in just under six intense, fun-filled weeks, and in just under seven well-researched, readable pages.
Thus, Speculative Grammarian and l’École de SpecGram, in association with and under the auspices of Psammeticus Press, are proud to present this monograph as a special midterm-supplement to Volume CLIII for our subscribers (as well as our other, less remunerative readers).
