Lingua, Frankly! It’s for You!

Maybe you are the greatest writer ever.

Maybe you are the worst.

Maybe you love words and etymology.

Maybe you always forget how to spell.

If you love or hate the English language, and if you enjoy reading funny things,1 you will probably like Lingua, Frankly. If you don’t care about language, you might at least enjoy the whimsical pictures.

If you are no fun and don’t have an opinion about anything, then Lingua, Frankly is not for you. Otherwise, welcome!


The footnotes are meant to be funny and interesting too, so that’s like getting extra value right there.
