Alex, she/hers, aromantic ace, 19, American in Scotland

I'm a second year student at the University of Edinburgh for English Literature.

This blog is unashamedly eclectic, so expect fandom things whatever grabs me at the moment. I also post a lot of social justice type posts.
I tag epilepsy warning (for fast or flashing gifs), arachnophobia, and common triggers in the form "x tw". Please ask me to tag anything you need to blacklist and I will absolutely do it without question. My askbox is always open.

I suffer from an advanced stage of dad humor. Prepare for puns.

cool idea: bait all the anglophiles at your school into attending a ‘british culture’ club with relevant shitty fandom posters

when they get there, lock them in the room with tea, crumpets, finger sandwiches and 8 hours worth of documentaries on the horrors of british imperialism. don’t allow them to leave until they have watched every single one.

very “clockwork orange”-ish. i like it.

Two linguists walk into a bar.


Also, scope ambiguity

Also structural ambiguity if you pretend that “into a bar” is the name of your dog.

(I’ve been marking intro linguistics finals and it gives me far-fetched ideas about constituency.)

Step 1. Become a linguist.
Step 2. Marry a linguist.
Step 3. Get a dog.
Step 4. Name dog “Into A Bar.”
Step 5. Two linguists walk into a bar.

Tempted to get a dog now so I can name it this and take it walking with ling-friends.
