A Beautiful Post about the Limitations of Language and the Universality of Experience

Wow, that's a long title.

I really loved "A Thanksgiving for Susie," a short piece by linguist Geoffrey Pullum, published today in The Chronicle of Higher Education's "Lingua Franca" blog. In it, he starts out with his usual curmudgeonly tone, but then the post shifts into something lovely and bittersweet.

Pullum is a contributor to one of my must-read blogs, Language Log.
