welcome to harvard: linguistics 101
Is this reality?
I went to a class on English curse words once, it was pretty epic. The best part was when one student was giving a presentation and the Professor interrupted her, saying “stupid bitch” very loudly, shocking her into silence and cracking the rest of us up. It took him a few seconds until he realised how it came accross and he was quick to explain that he had just added an example to her argument.
Yeah, we were taught this in my linguistics class as well. The point was to illustrate that fluent speakers of a language know the correct way to modify a word even when they haven’t explicitly been taught the rule. Grammar rules even apply to making words which are, strictly speaking, grammatically incorrect. We have an intuition about what is valid.
So my Chemistry teacher has an Asian grading scale…

- C - Can’t eat dinner
- D - Don’t come home
- F - Find a new family
