Warning: Scam conference and journals

 

The OMIC Group run dozens of sham conferences a year. Dragnet invitations, everybody's paper gets accepted, conference fees well over a thousand dollars (though honored 'speakers' are offered a 20% 'discount'--hurray!) For those with money still burning a hole in their pockets, they run lots of scam journals, too, and will publish your paper in an Open Access format for a publishing fee of more than a thousand dollars more. Oh, and if you want worldwide readership for your paper, they'll cheerfully run it through Google translate into as many as 50 languages. (Of course, that won't come cheap--more tens of hundreds of dollars for that, too.)

 

Thanks to

Janet Ainsworth, (Forensic Linguistics mail list)

It's actually quite interesting

Mark Gray investigated the meaning of these words in medial position (i.e. when they are not at the beginning or end of an utterance) to see how interchangeable they were. He used two sources of data for the analysis – the spoken part of the British National Corpus and a series of BBC 4 radio broadcasts of the ‘Any Questions’ programme.
