Here is a link to the article I have been working on lately. I spend a good part of every day on this thing. So far it’s 54 pages and I have no idea how many references. Maybe 150 by now. I’m going through putting in references and adding to the copy that’s already there because some sections are not well filled-out.
The subject is Historical Linguistics and it’s definitely specialist stuff. It’s headed for a peer reviewed academic journal. What I’m saying it’s not for everyone, and non-specialists might have a hard time understanding it. On the other hand, the subject matter is also pretty general for the general reader who’s interested in some rather intellectual arguments. There’s not a lot of really technical linguistics material in there.
