voiceless velar fricative Well I'm not a linguist, but I know words enough to figure out what that means. Voiceless meaning ... voiceless. "T" is voiceless. "M" isn't. "th" in "three" is voiceless, but "th" in "there" is voiced. Fricative I assume means produced by friction in the mouth, like "f" o...

I thought this episode was a lot of fun. I really liked the Doctor trying to be a normal bloke, and failing. Jan's saying in my ear and I agree with her so I'm going to say it as if it was me and not give her the credit (wait...) that 10 was human lots of times and seemed to do it easily. But 11 see...

Even if you're active in your church (and I'm thinking of my extremely conservative evangelical midwestern church) couples in their mid twenties will routinely live together for a year or more before getting married.

For myself, I like books. I read academic articles online, but I have never been tempted to read an entire book on an electronic device. That may be because I have never used any of the good e-book readers, I only read articles (and sometimes small sections of books, which is about all I can handle)...

What is (or should be) the purpose of studying literature?

Inspired by a rather ... heated discussion in one of my classes, here's the question: Is the point of studying literature to make people familiar with great books or is it to give them the skills to read anything well?
