Welcome to phonoloblog, a weblog for phonologists (and other interested linguists) to share any and all ideas relevant to phonology and phonological theory. If you’re a phonologist (or other interested linguist, or even just interested), you’re welcome to contribute — just read and agree to the “rules” below.
Comments on posts are automatically open to anyone who agrees to the rules. Actual posts require a username and password — ask Eric (email@example.com).
Rules of phonoloblog (updated as necessary; last update Jan. 14, 2006)
- phonoloblog is owned and administered by Eric Baković, a phonologist at UC San Diego.
- In principle, phonoloblog is open to contributions from anyone with a research interest in phonology. If you would like to be a contributor to phonoloblog, please contact Eric (firstname.lastname@example.org) and he’ll set you up (some restrictions apply). Of course, you’re perfectly welcome to just lurk.
- phonoloblog is primarily a blog for linguists, and so our contributors are not obliged to submit material that is understandable to nonlinguists (though some may do so). If you want more nonlinguist-friendly linguistics material — or just not so much phonology — check out Language Log instead.
- Any abuse of these rules will be dealt with swiftly and unapologetically.
Rules for comments (by way of H. Paul Grice). Disobey them and your comment will be removed.
- Make your contribution to the conversation as informative as necessary.
- Do not make your contribution to the conversation more informative than necessary.
- Do not say what you believe to be false.
- Do not say that for which you lack adequate evidence.
- Be relevant (i.e., say things related to the current topic of the conversation).
- Avoid obscurity of expression.
- Avoid ambiguity.
- Be brief (avoid unnecessary wordiness).
- Be orderly.
