March Newsletter is Out!

Linguists start young...
I was a very talkative little child. I was notorious for asking questions, especially the names of itemswhether I already knew them or not. My mom remembers one particularly trying time at the doctor’s office when I sat on the table and pointed at everything I saw, inquiring “Zat? Zat? Zat?” very enthusiastically.

(As a budding linguist, I'd already figured out that “what’s that?” will phonologically contract into the much more palatable and efficient "Zat?")

This theme of questions continues in my March newsletter, just sent out today. If you didn't receive one and would like to, please send me an email at catherine_rivard@wycliffe.org
