Favourite language blogs (results)

The what-are-your-favourite-language-blogs poll posted in June is now closed. Surprisingly, a little more than half of the answers were given as write-ins in the option ‘other’. Here are the results.


First, a thank-you to those who voted for this blog, we’re very flattered! Congratulations to Lavengro, Peter Harvey’s blog, which got the most votes. The call to vote for his blog apparently worked! As you can see, the two other most often mentioned favourite blogs were Language Log and the Chronicle of Higher Education’s Lingua Franca. Links to both of these are in our blogroll. Note too, the mixture of blogs about language in a more general sense, and blogs that deal with language usage itself.
