Because Blogger's "Adult warning" often goes into a perpetual loop (isn't working properly), I will be making all new posts at my WordPress blog. You can follow it even if you do not have a WordPress Account. There're also my Twitter and my Tumblr blog, my Facebook and my Google+ page and my group.
(Update: Blogger hasn't fixed its problem with the "adult warning". Will go back to posting at my WordPress blog)

Linguistics




A  linguistics professor was lecturing his class the other day. “In
English,” he said, “a double negative forms a positive. However, in some
languages, such as Russian, a double negative remains a negative. … But
there isn’t a single language, not one, in which a double positive can
express a negative.” A voice from the back of the room piped up, “Yeah,
right.”
