Dispatches from the trenches,
Rezension bezieht sich auf: Far from the Madding Gerund: And Other Dispatches from Language Log (Taschenbuch)
A delightful sampling of Language Log, with Professors Liberman and Pullum at their finest. I can't say really what I enjoy more, Liberman's linguistic investigations or Pullum's wonderfully caustic commentary on the prevalent idiotic practices in "mavenry". Just reading this book and following up on the discussions is an education not only in linguistics, but in clear thinking.
Good thing to have on the beside table, staring at a screen before sleep is not conducive to a good night's rest.
