Calendar fans take note: the Linguist's Calendar is not just for linguists

If you like the format of the Common Errors in English Usage daily calendar, you may be interested to know of a new calendar available to accompany Mikael Parkvall's Limits of Language.

The Linguist's Calendar takes a "this date in history" approach to languages and linguistics. And it's for anyone interested in language and history, not just linguists. Today's entry, for example, lets us know that on this day in 1999, the Nepalese Supreme Court ruled the use of minority languages in the country’s administration “non-constitutional and illegal.” The folly, apparently, is global.

You can subscribe to this calendar by e-mail, and as always, we do not collect e-mail addresses to redistribute in any way, and you can manage your own subscription to successfully unsubscribe at any time. (Not that you'll want to!)
