Remember the Alamo.
Tomorrow I’m off for a week of adventuring/food eating/mission visiting … and Texas Library Association conference attending. Huzzah! I hope to see many fellow tumblarians there - do flag me down and say hi if you spot me!
Cather + Wren = Catherine? Fangirl and the pin/pen merger -
I recently read the novel Fangirl by Rainbow Rowell, which is an excellent book that has nothing to do with linguistics. Despite that, I ended up noticing something linguistically interesting about the characters’ names, specifically that of Cather,…
Allthingslinguistic on Fangirl & dialects of American English.
When I say “pin” and “pen,” they sound the same. How about you?
lulabo asked: Let's talk this whole thing out. Thoughts, feelings, general dread, etc.
Oh, Caroline Lee. Will Pemberley Digital never let you remain a character in your own right? Must you be a stand-in for all of Austen’s antagonistic female characters? Will I next find out you were secretly engaged to Edward Ferrars?
Spoilers for Emma and today’s Emma Approved. This post is a long one, folks.
YAY EA meta!
fwentworth asked: Hi! Is the engagement the reason Lizzie tweeted her congratulations to Caroline?
Surprise, Bitch. I bet you thought you’d seen the last of me. — Caroline Lee (via toccarette)
