I'm still reading Verbatim. It's fascinating. Of course, I'm a language geek. *grin* So far, I've read articles entitled:
"Nullspeak: A Question of Rotating Strawberry Madonnas" (about phrases that will never be used)
"Slayer Slang" (yes, it's about that Slayer)
"Fanguage" (about sf fandom lingo)
and "Identity and Language in the SM Scene" (Guess.)
*bounce* When I'm done with this book, I have one about the history of candy to read. I know--I'm strange.
