Fun With Linguistics!

My Freakin' Pride!
I tried to respond to Andrew's post below several times, to offer an explanation before GBrowdy could show off. Alas! Sillytech thought I was spam! Even though I was logged in.

So I will offer you more auditory illusions thanks to the awesome Al Bregman AND another way cool video demonstrating the properties of sound using salt.

I will also remind Andrew- and any other readers who may or may not be named Gil- that he called me the better linguist. That's right... I'm the pettier better linguist!

MIT Open Course Ware saves Nigeria!
Today Mariana told me about some guy from Nigeria who emailed the Concordia Linguistics Student Association saying that they wanted to start a linguistics program but they didn't have any books or anything.

I mentioned to her that MIT had an Open Course Ware project going on, where they are putting all the materials for all of their classes online. MIT has a strong linguistics program, so I'm sure it's a valuable resource for the Nigerian dude. But MIT is strong in other things as well (computer science, engineering, AI, robotics, etc). So maybe there's something in this Open Course Ware program that's valuable for you?
