Looking back on the UC Linguistics blog in 2012

The UC Linguistics blog began in late 2011, so 2012 is its first full year. In 2012, we had almost:


Our busiest month was September (897 views!) which was when our lexical survey was being shared around. Our next most popular months were August (269 views) and November (248 views).

We’ve had visitors from all over the world, from…

55 countries

…to be precise. We had visitors from:

  • New Zealand (of course, 1243 views)
  • The UK (117)
  • USA (105)
  • Australia (82)
  • Canada (45)
  • Russia (34)
  • Germany (29)
  • Brazil (25)
  • Indonesia (22)
  • France (8)
  • Morocco (8)
  • Argentina (6)
  • Hungary (4)
  • India (4)
  • Pakistan (4)
  • Chile (4)
  • Saudi Arabia (3)
  • …and some others

Apart from direct links from Facebook, Twitter and Trademe (which are our top three referring sites), readers found their way to us mostly by searching for:

“What is Linguistics?”

That’s a very good question. If you want to know the answer, read our blog… 🙂

Best wishes for 2013 from everyone at

UC Linguistics!
