(mefi's own) Languagehat ranks #1 on the list of people asked about their favorite reads in 2011 by The Millions. I'm sure there are a couple other mefites on the list, too.
Hey, has anyone mentioned that MeFi's Own™ languagehat's book, Uglier Than a Monkey's Armpit: Untranslatable Insults, Put-Downs, and Curses from Around the World, was published in the US this July? [review | review | interview | lh's blog ]
I beseech languagehat here, publicly: please, my brother, try to be nice? [more inside]
Did anyone else hear LanguageHat on PRI's The World? [more inside]
This AskMe seems to be raising a kerfuffle, understandably. It's a very polarized subject; perhaps worth bringing to the attention of those who don't frequent AskMe? languagehat made a quite worthwhile comment.
Huh. So the blog of a certain Mr. Language Hat is linked in the sidebar at the Village Voice books section (under "Bookmarks") now? Is this old news? Did I miss something? Cheers for Mr. Hat, in any case.
I would like to say something nice about languagehat.
