I’m excited to announce that one of my posts, Welcome to Night Vale: where even “not” isn’t what it seems, has just appeared on the podcast Grammar Girl.
We also got permission to use actual audio clips from Welcome to Night Vale for the excerpts that I’m discussing, so you can go hear Cecil’s soothing tones interspersed with some linguistics (of course, you can also just read it yourself either here or there).
And yes, this does mean that someone involved in the creation of Welcome to Night Vale is aware that there has been linguistics analysis done of their work. Which is pretty darn cool.
I’ve got a few more articles in planning stages for Grammar Girl in the upcoming months, which I will link to when they’re up. In the meantime, you can read more of my longish original posts at #long reads or check out this list of linguistics-related podcasts (amusingly, it was this list of podcasts that lead Grammar Girl to my blog in the first place).
Now if you’ll excuse me, I seem to have misplaced my ability to even.
