quirks in language
One of my ESL students--a dear--the same one who asked me when did I get my 'papers'--came to me on Valentine's Day and was quite confused. She said, "Renee, I have a question. What is soitenly? I've seen it all day today on balloons." Every day I have a different, new perspective on language and I kick myself for taking it for granted.
