Sunday Evening Blogging to Annoy American Linguists, Especial Syntacticians

You know all your theories completely fail to account for and adequately describe polysynthetic languages.

You know that, don't you? Even though you come up with clever book titles and academic papers which glide ever so carefully around the edges of the problem.

Could it be that you just don't want to admit it?

Come on now, linguists, what good is a set of theories which lacks the ability to account for and adequately describe how many hundreds of languages?

Do you think maybe Vine DeLoria has a point? Or do we not go there anymore, what with tenure and whatnot?

There you go again...saying "/end of snark" when you have absolutely no intention of ending snarkiness!

:=D I love snarking at academics. It's one of my favorite hobbies.

And there's nothing they can do about it.

Besides, they deserve it. (said as an ex-academic, not as a liberal basher :=D ).
