After last week’s absolutely terrible ending here on the blog, I’m focusing on not writing a review this week (but I have been working on both the game and the Lay). The comic has brought a new audience it seems, which makes me happy. I’ve not been sharing much on the writing front at all lately, but it’s going well as far as it seems. I have been enduring a rather lengthy turn of general burn out from new, more expansive responsibilities and distraction.
So, here’s some interesting facets of the English language, from gawker media:
“In Modern English we have these third person pronouns, which can be broken into four categories – masculine, feminine, neuter, and plural. Essentially, and it’s always been this way in English, plural functions as a special gender in pronouns with its own verb conjugation to boot. It’s really quite neat that way, and that’s why I look at English as having not three, but four genders.” (Here’s the full text).
And here’s a beautiful set of images by Toby Allen. The imagination required to develop and demonstrate these nasty little creatures is amazing.
