talking about language(s) is fun. also, there is no word for 'kitten' in korean? :(. Harbert sent me and Recipient List Suppressed a blurb on Ling (Engl) 347--Topics in the History of English (Topic: Early Middle English as a Linguistic Watershed). it looks shiny :( and i want to take it but i have too many classes and arr :(
...syntactic differences such as the loss of verb-final order, the loss of postverbal subjects, the development of do-support and a category of modals which is syntactically distinct from other verbs, changes in the syntax of passive and 'impersonal' constructions and so on...
and also the "hey i understand those words and ideas" and hay language.

there are doublemany frowning faces in this entry, but they're, uh, vaguely manic frowns?. i'm sleepy.
