Yea, no way would I do it on the whole book. But it might suffice to do it on one or two chapters. Besides you can do whatever you want, I don't think they are expecting too much out of us, we're just freshman. And even if they are, that is my excuse. You can only use the dumb freshman excuse for one year so we might as well take advantage of it.

the validity of a word is based solely on its use in the population that speaks it. since people say "tizzy" and largely understand its meaning, it's real

sorry, sometimes i just can't contain the linguistics.

STORY OF MY LIFE. I'm both emo AND a linguist.

Anyway, Ben, we are the musicmakers and we are the dreamers of dreams. We are also the definitive source on our own lexicon. If you think your singular is a real word despite the dictionary's agreement, it is because you use it and you have given it meaning. A wordmaker is you!

This is true. I also found it on dictionary.com, and that generally suggests it's probably true.

Though I could go post-structural rhetorician on y'all and complain that if someone has to ask what it means, then it's probably not a word since it can't convey one meaning. Then again, since a word doesn't really signify anything, any word (or no word) could (or should) do, now schouldn't it?

I sincerely apologize for taking this WAY too far. But like Dia said.... can't contain the linguist in me.
