Welcome to Words and Wars!
Words and Wars was founded in February 2018 to provide granular analysis on the leading issues in linguistics and U.S. foreign policy. It is designed for readers who are interested in a variety of obscure things from a semantic analysis of deictic expressions to a military analysis of Iran’s A2/AD strategy in the Persian Gulf. Anything on linguistics or U.S. foreign policy—though sometimes we may cheat a bit with computer science and domestic politics—is fair game for this blog. We strive to publish high quality content on today’s most complex and cutting-edge ideas.
While our subject matter certainly sets us apart from other publications, another feature that makes us unique is our commitment to free speech. This blog (at least in theory) will not serve as an echo chamber of the editor’s ideas, but include ideas from across the political spectrum. Whether you are pro-Chomsky or anti-Chomsky, dovish or hawkish, far left or far right, all views and ideas are welcome on the site provided they meet our publication standards.
