It's true! My article "[Review of] Programming for Linguists: Perl for Language Researchers, by Michael Hammond" has just appeared in the Journal of English Linguistics, XXXI:3 (Sept. 2003). Props to my man Sean M. Burke for some very valuable comments on an early draft, which comments encouraged me because they exactly matched what I had already decided about the book.
The review is considerably more critical than the one that appeared on Linguist List earlier this year.
But enough of that. I have published about Perl in a peer-reviewed journal! I'm all grown up! Why, I think I even understand closures now!
