Tell me…

Normal programming will resume shortly.

In the meantime, do you, dear reader, think that calling sloppily applied internal reconstruction glorified syntactic folk etymology is too rude for a respected journal like Diachronica?

  1. Ouch! Del. “glorified”?

  2. I hope not, because I love it!

  3. Say it and let the reviewers complain if necessary.

    Does Diachronica conduct double-blind peer-review like the Zoological Journal of the Linnean Society does? There, you have to submit the author names and affiliations as a separate file that is not sent to the reviewers. If that is the case, nothing should stop you from saying it! If not, just be careful who you suggest as potential referees and who you want to exclude as potential referees…

    In general, however, historical linguists already seem to be surprisingly impolite when talking about each other’s phylogenetic hypotheses.
