Words and language

I’ve always loved learning new words. I also enjoy dabbling in linguistics. So I’ve decided to add a new category of “Good reading”-type links to resources related to words, languages, linguistics, and the like.

Here are a couple of recent discoveries I’ve made:

Literal-Minded – a great blog about linguistics.

alphaDictionary – a huge site with links to dictionaries for roughly 300 languages, Dr. Goodword’s (formerly Dr. Language at YourDictionary.com) blog, articles on grammar/linguistics/words, specialty dictionaries (like the Historical Dictionary of American Slang, which defaults to “clean” definitions), and, just for Danny: The Advanced Southern Accent Test — and more!
