Ask-A-Linguist is a discussion board run by the LINGUIST List that allows non-linguistic people to ask questions that are relevant to the field of linguistics. However, it's often home to questions and answers that are fascinating to linguists as well. What do you think of the discussions going on here?

Does anyone have know an answer for this this excellent question?

I moderate this discussion board and I'm always intrigued by the question that are asked. Dig around and see what people want to know!
