JSTOR Daily's popular linguistics column gets exposure via social and news sites.


Brace yourself for a humble-brag: JSTOR Daily's linguistics column, Lingua Obscura, has developed a loyal following. Lingua Obscura, a regular feature in theDaily newsletters, focuses on contemporary language patterns, including internet neologisms—think "stress-eating," "rage-quitting," and yes, "humble-bragging."


Articles from the column have been picked up by the news website Reddit ("Young Women’s Language Patterns"), as well as a few linguistic blogs. This recent post on hip hop was shared by the "NYT Now" app from the New York Times. Want more articles from DailySign up for our e-newsletter.
