It's happened.

I've become that person to whom people send the twitter accounts of dedicated empiricists, and connoisseurs of a certain Dalhousie U philosopher's potpourri.

One could become quite distraught about becoming the neighbourhood exorcist... after all, the job is confrontational and messy, and life is short. On top of all of that, linguistics already has a full egg carton of exorcists.

In any event, I've decided to take it in stride. If linguistics doesn't have any more space for self-styled exorcists, perhaps it could use a few more rabbis?

More to the point of this post, I've decided to take a much needed holiday for the remainder of the month.

Beginning in early January, the PB team will return to posting interviews with the new & the hip, starting with none other than David Poeppel.

In the meantime, check out this fucking blog: {http://stronglang.wordpress.com/}

Excerpt from stronglang:

"If vulgar language offends you, then thank you. You’re one of the people who help maintain the effectiveness of vulgarities. You will very likely be offended by the articles in this blog.

If vulgar language interests or entertains you, or is a constant source of solace or release, and if you like language in general, then come on in.

This blog gives a place for professional language geeks to talk about things they can’t talk about in more polite contexts. It’s a sweary blog about swearing."

Until January, Comrades.
