Recent Jeopardy Categories

I try to make a point of watching Jeopardy whenever I can because I believe it is one of the highest quality and most educational game shows on television. I especially love to see how much fun the writers have naming the categories. They truly know how to be creative with language.

Because of my love of linguistics, a couple of my favorite categories recently were You're Such an Idiom and Slanguage. Of course, this got me to thinking of other potential linguistic category titles. Here are some that I have come up with: Clitical Mass, Nice Dipthong, Free the Morphemes, A Nominal Cost, Foxymorons, Hang up the Phoneme, Tag (Question) You're It.
