The Recursiveness of Language - A Linkfest

Because language is recursive, I thought it would be fun to post links to linkfests from some of my favorite linguistics blogs.

Fritinancy - Linkfests

Sentence First - Link Love

Literal-Minded - Linkfests In linguistics, recursion is the unlimited extension of language. It is the ability to embed phrases within phrases and sentences within sentences resulting in the potential of a never-ending sentence.

I sure hope that someone will link to my links to these linkfests and that another person will link to that link and another person will link to the link that links to my links to these linkfests and so on and so on and so on...

Thank you very much for the link, Laura, and for the kind words. This is a nifty idea, and I do like a spot of recursion. I'll be linking back to this in an upcoming episode of Link love!
