It’s time for another Linguists Against Humanity contest!
This time, your challenge is to answer the one of the black cards above.
To enter, visit our submit page (NOT our ask page) and complete the form as follows:
The words “contest submission” in the title section of the form.
You must be logged into Tumblr to enter. Submissions are limited to one per person. This way, we can keep track of usernames/url’s. We won’t accept your submission if you’re not logged in.
A real working e-mail address so we can contact you if you win (we won’t publish or share it, we promise).
The full text of your chosen black card (selected from the 4 cards above).
The full text of your chosen white card (selected from existing white cards — browse through them here).
We will accept submissions starting…. NOW! Keep ‘em coming until midnight ET on Friday, October 24. (Seriously, we won’t accept them after that.) We’ll turn them into images, and post them on the morning of Saturday, October 25. Voting will run through midnight ET on Tuesday, October 28. The three submissions that receive the most notes will win PRIZES! Like last time, nothing fancy, but fun will be had by all:
Third prize: downloadable linguistics-themed candy labels so you can confuse your trick-or-treaters
Second prize: third prize PLUS a multilingual mixtape
First prize: third prize PLUS second prize PLUS a copy of the Concise Dictionary of Minnesota Ojibwe signed by the three of us because we like to think we’re celebrities
