  1. A decade or so ago, Language Log was one of my must-read blogs. I was a math teacher but sometimes had to cover Language Arts classes and I used material from the blog to make "emergency" work for when a teacher did not leave enough work to keep the students busy. Thanks for reintroducing me to it. it is going back on my morning reading list. It's on Twitter now. Today's tweet:

    LINGUISTICS PROFESSOR: In English, a double negative forms a positive. In Russian, a double negative remains a negative. But there isn't a single language in which a double positive can express a negative.

    STUDENT: Yeah right.
