love letter to a language  
Let it be known that I am in love with this post:

ETA: Oh, dear. I have lost far too much time to reading back entries of this blog. I am glad that there are lexicographers, and I know that I would never have the patience to be one. (This is actually the story of my life in miniature, I think: I am deeply envious of experts, and desirous of being one, but I am actually a scatty sort of dilettante. I get a lot of enjoyment out of nitpicky details, but am not really a systematic enough person or thinker to deal with those details in the proper, cataloguing way they require.)

Isn't it great? It makes me wish I knew Old English. :)

Nice find thanks for sharing. I really wish I knew some foreign languages besides pascal, fortran, basic, C, C# *grin*
Must resist the dangerous time sink her blog.

At least you know those! :) There was once a time when I could say that I knew Latin, but I've mostly forgotten it by this point. I need one of those short refresher courses or something.
