Solve a Puzzle, Win a Prize!

Dear LINGUIST List readers, subscribers, and supporters–

As part of our 2019 Fund Drive, the fine editors at Speculative Grammarian have offered us a challenge!

If you are one of the first to write in and solve the following puzzle, you may win a prize! The first two to write in with the correct answer to the cryptogram will receive a copy of SpecGram for free! After that, we have SpecGram magnets and post cards to send to runners up!

The cryptogram was created using a cipher based on the letter ‘e’.


it’s e’s-y!


DO NOT comment your answer on a facebook post or other social media–send your answers to one or more of the following addresses:
