A thousand things to say about language

For those who like to watch the odometer roll over to a new power of 10: Mark just posted item number 1000 to Language Log. It's not actually the thousandth post to appear here, because some items got as far as being drafts with numbers but didn't in the end get published (one was withdrawn by request of someone who got cold feet when he saw his words posted here). But to a rough approximation, Language Log has now attained a publication rate in the region of a thousand items a year.
