I used to have them. Really, I did.
I used to be able to tell you about language endangerment and specific studies into the development of child speech. I used to be able to talk, for almost 10 minutes, about click languages and lexical functional grammar. I used to be able to read and write in phonetics, I could even make some of the more bizarre sounds.
Now, I can't.
I have, however decided, that the knowledge must still reside in my brain somewhere, it doesn't just disappear, so, with a little bit of study, I am sure I can get it back.
So, that is my aim. And, I hope you don't mind, but I am roping you lot in.
Every week, I will be doing a post on something fun* that I have learnt from my Linguistic studies.
Look out for post number 1 - next Monday!
* Disclaimer..... I think it is fun! If you are anything like Steve, you will think that linguistic facts are dull with a capital D.
