Publish or Perish – New Academic Paper Online

If you want to check out my academic work, my first paper has been published:

“Science Fiction und die Zukunft der Englischen Sprache: Neologismen, Vereinfachungen, Kreolisierungen oder lieber gleich Klingonisch?”, an academic paper on language and science fiction I presented at the 10. Norddeutsches Linguistisches Kolloquium at the University of Greifswald is now online at the electronic collections archive of the University of Bielefeld.

Since it was a regional conference, the paper is in German. Two more academic papers will be appearing in the next few months.

    This looks most promising–though from the abstract it seems mostly to deal with sf, and not fantasy, where I see the most linguistic invention done, at least in the past 25 years.

    The paper started life as a chapter from my MA thesis which I reworked and expanded upon receiving the invitation to the conference (once I had gotten over the initial “They invited me?! But I’m just a substitute lecturer” freak out, that is). My MA thesis was on SF and so the paper focused mainly on linguistics and SF as well. Though there is a bit about fantasy (mainly Tolkien) in there.
