Quote of the week ...

From a quick conversation with an obviously frustrated colleague who has been struggling for some very long period of time to review "one of the weakest papers I've ever read" for a major journal:
Linguistic argumentation gone bad is a terrible thing.
When writing an article, I like to:
  • Build a coherent argument!
  • Present relevant data!
  • Draw conclusions!
Remember, kids: Get that manuscript into tiptop shape before you send it out!
