    "Holocaustal Premises: Political Implications of the Traumatic Frame"

    Gosh - sounds like something you'd see in the "Pseuds" column of Private Eye.

    And gee - I'm no professor but the concept that an event like the Holocaust might have some influence on the way Israelis view the hostile region that surrounds them seems eh, well, academic even to me.

    The sort of dense, "scholarly" language evinced by that title reminds me again why I finally lost my love for linguistics: over the years, its terminology has simply become so impenetrable that it has sucked any life and joy out of the discipline.
