Marion Blais

Recognized when I was young the power that language has. That was followed closely by recognizing the havoc wreaked by not using it correctly. Pursued the origins and evolution of words ever since in an effort at greater understanding. Semi-retired to dogs, cross-word puzzles, and trying to keep our local paper on the linguistic straight-and-narrow. Not a master; still a student.

Calvin: "Verbing weirds language." Hobbes: "Maybe we can eventually make language a complete impediment to understanding." (Calvin & Hobbes by Bill Watterson)
