When I examine my research ideas list, it's all over the place. Apparently...

- I like (socio)phonology more than I consciously know

- I imagine a lot of things about construction grammar even tho I didn't really do my reading yet

- I love meta stuff like citation styles, research methods, open/reproducible rsc, terminology

- My older ideas are social justice related (ethnic minorities in Turkey, esp.)

- I feel a need to attack some fundamentals of linguistics

- I like my my quantitative


Then I look at people's CVs and they've pretty consistently studied wh constructions in some language for half a bloody century.

What kind of ungodly focus is this and where do I buy an infinite supply of it?
