beginning of the semester anxiety before you find out what kind of grader your prof is and whether he kills on sight for use of singular "data"

"Grammar is stored in the brain, semantics is stored in the heart and pee is stored in the balls" (Chomsky, 1965, p. 1).

the idea of committing to a research masters worries me bc i know in my heart i wont be able to study what i truly want (Auslan prosody) bc theyll be like oh well theres no real precedent for such a specific topic so why dont you do something else

how come chompsky and other ancient white dudes could just come right out of the gate declaring shit like "language is stored in the brain" but ill be forced to prove that Auslan is a natural language for the eight millionth time

group project hell 

yea sex is cool but what about googling a chapter title and finding a pdf of the whole ass textbook on the first page of google

every single piece of academic content benefits from an explicit specification of what languages were observed that evidence the offered argument. especially specification of spoken or signed modality. preferably in the title but abstract at the very latest.

there is literally no downside to this. it can only improve your understanding of the context of your results and keep you from concluding on language universals that simply don't exist.

i do love living here but damn is it annoying to be heading to bed just as the rest of the world wide web is waking up :ohno:
