The abstract for my LSA panel about popularizing linguistics online is now up.
I had some fun with #LingTomSwifties on twitter.

I ran a series on my blog about the various possible ways to teach yourself to draw syntax trees.
- So, you asked the internet how to draw syntax trees. Here’s why you’re confused.

- Reconciling theories and final notes
- Other resources and topics
I also attended NWAV 43 (New Ways of Analyzing Variation) in Chicago (which memorably involved witnessing this song to Bill Labov), and NELS 45 (North-East Linguistics Society) in Boston. Here are my Lexicon Valley and All Things Linguistic pins for conference-wearing!
