The first issue of the eJournal 10plus1: Living Linguistics was published a couple of (busy) weeks ago. This journal is the “baby” of my colleague-friend Jana Pflaeging and me. We had been working on it since late 2014, designing the concept, building an editorial board, web design, and so many more tasks that we wouldn’t have dreamt of. The first issue assembles lots of very interesting contributions under the title “Media Linguistics”. The work for the next issue “Contact Linguistics” (guest-edited by Marion Schulte, Bielefeld) has already started. But for now, I am just very happy (and grateful) to have fulfilled this dream together with Jana. Cheers, 10plus1!
