My main upcoming project on this blog is Language Log Twelve Years Later – a witty commentary (oh, that’s where sarcasm comes in! I wondered why I thought it’s so likely to appear) on classic Language Log (the 2003-08 run, in theory, though I doubt it would get all the way there, and if it does I doubt it would stop at the boundary).
And by this, I mean there will be a commentary on every single article. Since very early articles were far away in time from each other, the gap will probably shrink for a while, but it would inevitably start to grow very quickly as articles become more frequent (up to several per day, and at times perhaps more). I do not intend to ever let it shrink to under 12 years (thus the title), but it would require much more frequent posting that I’m likely to produce anyway.
There are… 5500 or so classic Language Log articles, apparently. There are roughly 1700 days in its run, so that’s an average of 3.2 articles per day. (A bit more if we discount the slow start in 2003.)
…I’m pretty sure that’s not my only current upcoming project, but I really wanted to post this before the end of the 29th of February. I might edit this to add some more later.
(Incidentally, in the inner editing system, this is apparently post number 37. Even though it’s only my second WordPress post ever.)
