Re: 1145: "Sky Color"

Screw these two questions that have been answered thoroughly in this thread, what I really want to know is this. Why did the kid emphasize "isn't" instead of "violet?" Finally, a question for a linguist! Short answer: It's contrastive - "is" from the first question (&q...

Re: "The Ring" Discussion

I'd have to lift up my heels while driving past a fence or fence post (along with hedges, trees, and any other reasonably solid object within about 20 feet of the road). I'd try to do e...
