Love confessions of a linguistic mind.

I told you the other day that I'm a language nerd. But what does that mean? Well, it means that I wish I could sit and look into a grammar book all day long and just learn how verbs are being conjugated and how synonyms are almost the same but not really.

It also means that I absolutely love puns – omgthatspunny is one of my favorite tweeters. The best kind of wordplay is that one that actually involves linguistics in some kind of way. Once, I went to a Grammar festival (true, it's true). One of the lectures was called something as brilliant as:

"A preposition is bad to end a sentence with."

I will never forget that. Oh dear, my heart races whenever I think about it. #nerd

What's your thing? What do you love so much it becomes a bit dorky?
