Geoffrey K. Pullum: Full Publications List


This is a full list of in forward chronological order of all my publications that could be said to have something to do with linguistics. If you know the date of an item, click on the publication year.

1970 1971 1972 1973 1974 1975 1976 1977 1978 1979
1980 1981 1982 1983 1984 1985 1986 1987 1988 1989
1990 1991 1992 1993 1994 1995 1996 1997 1998 1999
2000 2001 2002 2003 2004 2005 2006 2007 2008 2009
2010 2011 2012 2013 2014 2015 2016 2017 2018 2019

This list is mostly to help me look things up, regardless of significance. However, letters to journals and magazines are listed here only in a very few cases where they deal with linguistic topics and the journal or magazine has some significance (e.g. items 73 [1982], 234 [2009], and 273 [2017]). One poem is included (item 191 [2000]), but note that it was approved for publication in a refereed mathematics journal (despite having a bug — referees make mistakes; the debugged version is here).

TOPIC...COMMENT opinion pieces in their original form are listed here, because they were in a refereed journal, Natural Language and Linguistic Theory — though of course they are not research publications, in fact two of them, items 120 [1986] and 143 [1989], are works of fiction. Online publications are excluded unless they represent refereed scholarly research, like items 255 and 258 [2011].

There is a list of my 676 ‘Language Log Classic’ blog posts here, and a regularly updated index to my posts in the new Language Log series here. When the editors of The Chronicle of Higher Education print a Lingua Franca post The Chronicle Review, the print version does get listed here. You can find a full listing of the online ones here.

When a working paper is revised and published in final form elsewhere with a different title and/or year, the two get separate entries, cross-referenced. Where links to PDFs are included, they are generally to pre-final drafts that I am legally permitted to share with you rather than the final versions guarded by the fierce dogs of corporate copyright, so please check the printed source before quoting in print.

A year-of-publication error necessitated a small revision and reordering of items from the 1980s on 2 July 2011; but mostly the item numbers in this list have been stable for years, and I sometimes use the numbers to point people to particular items.
