a whole nother

language and thoughts about it

Friday, November 04, 2005



Google's latest step toward world dominance: print.google.com.

I searched there for whole nother yesterday and found numerous results, including two from linguistics-related books. That pleased me.

And I haven't heard whole nother in at least a month because everyone I know knows the phrase. So I present another linguistic anomoly I recently heard...

Dave: "I'm giving a presentation on coal mining in West Virginia this afternoon."

Kent: "But you don't know anything about coal mining in West Virginia."

Dave: "I know. I guess it was in student news. One of my friends forwardeded to me."
