it was amazing
Read from July 28 to August 15, 2011

As an amatuer linguist, I found this to be the perfect book. It is quintessential material. Wonderfully written, funny and surprisingly in-depth, I would have to put this one down for a minute or so in five-page intervals because it was so richly thought-provoking. It was a "heavy meal" of anecdotal, empirical language study.
