We here at Silly Linguistics love language and linguistics and want to share it with the world. Have you ever wondered why English spelling is so weird? Have you ever wondered where words come from? Well, in this magazine we cover all this and more. We talk to linguists and ask them all sorts of interesting questions about language. We talk to language lovers and talk to them about their highs and lows of language learning.

We discuss etymology and where words come from. We look at the social impact of words and how words shape the world around us. Languages are fundamentally human and they touch all parts of our lives. We seek to explore how language shapes our lives and the world around us. How do different groups use language and what can that teach us about being human.

“I recently took the plunge of getting the magazine.
I can’t tell you how utterly I adore it.
I’m one issue in & ration reading the articles so I don’t run out too quickly.

I practically squee’d when my inbox told me another issue had arrived (& know it’s only a matter of time before I break & have to acquire ALL back issues)…
Thoughts of one day contributing make me giddy.
LOVE what you’ve done & assembled
