Newsletter

I publish an newsletter called The Winged Schwa, where I write about linguistics and language learning. Issues contain research summaries, invitations to events in the world of online linguistics, and course discounts.

Why "The Winged Schwa"? Schwa is the name of the vowel in all of the bold syllables in this sentence. In the International Phonetic Alphabet, it's written as an upside-down "e", like so: [ə]. It's become a sort of symbol for linguistics as a field. And in this case, it has wings because it flies into your inbox every week.

If you're a lover of language, I think you'll enjoy it.

Best newsletter I receive.
