Let's just say that if I won the lottery, I'd probably go back to school and get a PhD in Linguistics (don't even get me started on how much I love the Great Vowel Shift). That statement probably helps explain why I am dying to read this book, by Kitty Burns Florey. Some of the happiest days of my life were spent at the chalkboard diagramming sentences in Mrs. Bowman's 7th grade language arts class.
P.S. My inner nerd also loved this post a while back by Jane.
