we're moving to #Prague! and we need some friends.
we're moving to #Czechia in August or September and we might be a bit lonely. so if you're #queer, #Jewish, #neurodivergent, in your 20's or all of the above, we'd like to know you!

I'm into #music, #FOSS, #linguistics, #DoctorWho, #TTRPG and #DropoutTV. oh, and I'm #trans.
my girlfriend likes #medicine, British television, #Disney, #Eurovision and #TrueCrime. "I am the bisexual stereotype".

I am super excited about this mini-conference on #reproducibility in #linguistics that I am organising this evening: Four of my M.A. students will be reporting on their attempts to reproduce the results of four published quantitative linguistics papers for which the data is available, but not the code!

Colleagues, they have *a lot* of things to report! So, if you're in the area (Cologne), do come along! There will be #ReproducibiliTea and Christmas biscuits! 🍵 🍪 #OpenScience


This has been going around on Twitter, but I neglected my community here :) I'm sorry about this :)
Tomorrow at noon EST, I will give a #talk on the #accessibility of #language #learning and #linguistics in general for #screenReader users as part of the a11yTalks event. This will be a public event with no need to register so if this is something any of you are interested in, here's the link :) a11ytalks.com/posts/2023-MAY/ #speaker #a11y

Fascinating article!

"Unearthing a Long Ignored African Writing System, One Researcher Finds African History, by Africans: BU anthropologist Fallou Ngom discovered Ajami, a modified Arabic script, in a box of his late father’s old papers" posted December 21, 2022, written by Molly Callahan

I’m writing an article that expands my microblog entry on stylometric fingerprinting to give more comprehensive advice. I am partially walking back on my recommendation not to use machine translation and adding information about reading levels, among other things. Would anybody familiar with #stylometry, or with a #linguistics background experienced with close-reading, be up for reviewing a rough draft next week?

I’d also be interested in how people may describe my own stylometric fingerprint (signature phrases, grammar quirks, etc), to use as an example.

Boosts appreciated.
