Such feels. Many grammar. Wow.

on Tuesday, Feb. 11th

If you read just one article wherein “A Linguist Explains the Grammar of Doge” make it this one by Gretchen McCulloch:

But what is it about shiba inus that makes them violate the selectional restrictions of certain English modifiers? Even if you’re a devoted animal fan and you swear that Fluffy understands you when you talk about dinner or the vet, I highly doubt you think that Fluffy actually talks back in English sentences, grammatical or not. And, I mean, dogs are both colourblind and renowned for their sophisticated taste in typography so they would clearly never arrive at multicolored Comic Sans as a font of choice.

The real source probably comes from a combination of two other influences: how we as humans talk to our pets, and how we talk to each other on the internet.

Favorite thing: The Toast files this article under “Magic.” Second favorite thing: McCulloch’s exploration of “stylized verbal incoherence mirroring emotional incoherence.” Wow.
