Language Log » Flash from the LSA

One of my favorite blogs, Language Log, is honored.

The Linguistic Society of America announces the 2009 recipient of the Linguistics, Language and the Public Award, given for a body of work that has had a demonstrable impact on the public awareness of language and/or linguistics.

The award will be given to Language Log, a collaborative science blog devoted to linguistics and written by a team of more than a dozen prominent linguists, almost all members of the Linguistic Society of America.

LL tackles issues linguistical at levels from the technical (defined as “stuff I don’t understand”) to the comical (literally: language issues reflected in comic strips). It’s anti-prescriptivist and positively skeptical, and wonderful.

    Language Log is excellent. One of my English professors regularly encourages her students to visit the site.
