Interlude: Language Log

March 25, 2010

In this world, there are normal people, and then there are people (like me) who get all tingly when they come across words like deixis and triphthong and linguolabial fricative (which is unfortunately not as dirty as it sounds). If you* are one of these people, and you have not done so already, you should skedaddle over to Language Log forthwith, where you can burn up many Internet hours perusing articles about embarrassing spell-checker miscorrections and dead fish brains’ documented reactions to human facial expressions. Oh yes, it is truly a beautiful thing.

*Normally this would be a purely figurative use of the word “you”, but I see I have had some actual mystery blog visitors recently. Yeah, you! Say hi or something. *cheery wave*
