tuesday: so i am reading the grammarians, i think i might have told you this already, about twin sisters who love words and whose father gifted them, as children, an edition of webster’s second. as they grow older they differ on the use of language and are at odds over the idea of living language.
you know how once you see something, or buy something, you see more and more of the same thing. and so, today, i was killing time and stumbled across this movie on kanopy.com (you must get your own subscription, it’s free with your library card). i found the professor and the madman.
in both the film and the novel the characters struggle with usage and documentation of living language. i want to know more.
