Hail to the chief!

Posted on October 25, 2008 by

Manchet has heard whispers in the halls of Samuel Alexander that colleague David Denison has assumed the presidency of the recently formed International Society for the Linguistics of English, which had a hum-dinger of an inaugural 300 person strong meeting recently in Freiburg. You can view pictures of the society’s salute to their new chief here and accompany the celebration with our Stoke-on-Trent neighboor Slash (of Guns N Roses fame)’s Jimi Hendrix wannabe rendition of the Star Spangled Banner. (Manchet couldn’t find an appropriate version of Hail to the Chief, but no worries, we’re resourceful and make do with what we can find.)
