Link Love post on Sentence first included a link to an interview with David Crystal. The timing of my internet access and his posting were perfect as I just finished reading David Crystal's Just a Phrase I'm Going Through: My Life in Language.
Crystal is a fascinating speaker and writer who succeeds in making linguistics accessible to all (not to mention the fact that he doesn't disappoint in the humor area while still being very informative).
Neal Whitman's post David Crystal's Just a Phrase I'm Going Through on his blog Literal-minded does such a good job of summarizing the book and providing examples of anecdotes found in the book that I will just sign off now.
I am heading back to internet no man's land. Until I return again, please check out all of the above links.
