Want to know how to boost your H-factor? How to get cited just because your title sounds cool? Psammeticus Press is pleased to announce the release of another fine installment in the oft-copied but never-equalled Chiasmus Linguistics Project, which offers important, cleverly titled books on a wide variety of meaningful linguistic topics in linguistically meaningful fields that vary as widely as the books which both are titled so cleverly and are so important.

The era in which a scholar would simply need to sit in a narrow, high-vaulted Gothic room to be considered respectable and worthy of publication by equally respectable publishing houses has definitely come to an end. Today’s scholars need to sell themselves in the ever more competitive showbiz market of (preferably) applied research. It would, however, be a shame as well as a sign of resignation to give in to the demands of this superficial world and to propose nothing but flashy buzzword titles to catch the eye of journal editors and publishing houses. The artful use of tropes shows off your expensive education and provides a guarantee of the quality of your work! Colourful diagrams reveal your delicate sense of art in use! Never see your paper rejected again! Easy-to-apply step-by-step guidelines will lead you directly and inevitably into the Pantheon of the most frequently cited scholars in your domain.
