Apologies for the ragged formatting of this – it’s just a post to display the information that I don’t have space to tweet.

SOAS have a growing interest in SL linguistics – apparently.

    Hi redpoz, I’m afraid I don’t have any more information, all I’ve done is repost an advert that was disseminated on a list. The only people who can give you more info are soas themselves.
