One of the many blogs I read every day is Language Log, which is a group of qualified linguistics experts from major universities commentating (or is that commenting?) on the nuances of human communication.
It’s usually interesting, if you are interested in languages at all. I, for example, try very hard to speak French, and even a little Spanish, and I’m fascinated by this stuff in general.
I particularly love the way French sounds, and in fact I was just humming a tune by Carla Bruni, a French singer, on the tour bus on the way back to the hotel. So you can imagine the frame of mind I was in when I read this hilarous post by Geoffrey Pullum.
