At last

This journal arrived on Friday. I was pretty happy - it has taken almost two years to get my article published in it. I made things a bit interesting by selecting a journal that only takes 9-15% of articles submitted.

Meanwhile, I've been busy doing marking. I've got a few more days of it to go but then it will be time to turn my hand to writing a conference paper for the pragmatics conference in Melbourne. For that I will be returning to my PhD analysis and examining some (as yet unpublished)sequences where help was accomplished by children.

Last week I had the pleasure of attending Beef Week in Rockhampton which is held at the show ground. While the displays are extensive, I was mostly taken by the actually displays of cattle. This pic captures some of the best of it - cattle (beef) lying in close enclosures but appearing to be at peace.
