So, I have made the plunge. I promised to do it. I’m doing it.
The blog serves two purposes. It will tie in with my teaching, especially in introductory philosophy of language and linguistics. And it will serve as a soap box for promoting an ecumenical, pluralist take on the nature of linguistics and its methodologies.
A word on the blog’s name. It’s a pun on the kind of tone I am aiming for — chatting philosophically — and on the topic, namely philosophy of talk/language.
