Linguistics Cartoons to Bring You Luck on Friday 13th

My very clever colleague Matt is having his viva today (good luck Matt!), and he posted this Indo-European cartoon to illustrate the occasion. (Killing a dragon is of course the linguists’ version of the famous viva “snake fight”, just FYI.)

You can see more of Christina Skelton’s great cartoons on Linear B and Indo-European over here.

But I should also remind anyone having their viva soon to watch out for sociolinguists too. They’ve fought more than just snakes in their time.

And remember…

Happy Friday 13th everyone!
