Mine! Allllll mine!!!

When I was about eight or nine, I spent a lot of time in our finished basement playing Super Mario Bros. My father had a fancy stereo system that I was scared to touch, but I did know how to do one thing: turn on the 7″ reel-to-reel tape player and start the five Beatles albums he’d recorded on the big tapes that looked like filmstrips. I was obsessed with The Beatles, and it was bigger than any fear I had of potentially messing up the stereo and getting in trouble.

Kirkus loves MY BEST FRIEND, MAYBE by Caela Carter!

—“Emotionally rich characters make this an engaging drama that is as much about people finding places within their families as it is about the damage done by rigid adults to vulnerable kids.”

You should go preorder it now. Right now.

allthingslinguistic:

I recently read the novel Fangirl by Rainbow Rowell, which is an excellent book that has nothing to do with linguistics. Despite that, I ended up noticing something linguistically interesting about the characters’ names, specifically that of Cather, the main character, and her twin sister Wren.

(Although she goes by “Cath” for most of the book, I’ll continue referring to her by her full name for reasons that will shortly become apparent. I’ll be discussing something that happened midway through the book, but I think it’s really too minor to count as a spoiler.)

I am back and rested from ECCC 2014. Nice to meet so many fine people. This comic-illustration might be of use for those of you who find yourselves in a similar situation wishing to avoid offense.

I need one of these deadly micro-beetles. I’m shit at remembering names.
