Pullum in the Times

Language Logger Geoff Pullum contributes many of the insights, and nearly all the one-liners, to a piece in the Week in Review section of today's New York Times:
Glater, Jonathan D. Cold, Colder, Coldest: Then What?. The New York Times, Sunday Week in Review, January 18, 2004.
Geoff's quips are brisk, and sometimes sexy, but they nonetheless work to establish that languages are not just big bags of words, and that, in particular, Eskimo languages are not just big bags of words for snow. Posted by Christopher Potts at January 18, 2004 12:43 PM
