1. When somebody uses grammar incorrectly, you just about lose your shit.
2. Maybe I'll allow a little leeway on syntax, but at least know the words you want to use!
3. You've started analysing accents and language so you can't have a normal conversation without your brain trying to deduce the background of this person via (awesome) linguistics.
4. You have an opinion on how children acquire language, be you be in the Chomsky, Crystal or the Piaget camp.
5. You listen to recordings of the same thing over and over again, maybe in different accents, maybe not.
6. The day you learnt how to adjust your voice in each different little way was one of the funnest days of your life.
7. Old English (etc) will either bring you out in cold sweats as you relive a painful and horrible time of your life...
8. Or you're one of those really weird ones who loves it. Each to their own.
9. Semantic change, amelioration or pejoration, is hella cool. You know this, why do others not understand? NOBODY GETS THIS.
10. People always act as if your degree taught you nothing and was easy compared to their science/maths degree.
11. Though you did learn some incredibly obvious stuff in first year that was basically common sense. Grice's Maxims much?
12. You understand the contentment that comes with most of your work being reading that can be done anywhere. Which basically means you never have to leave your bed. And always be under your blanket.
13. You've also mastered the art of working a brilliant essay out of a few simple bullet points.
14. You know the background of CMC and understand the history of computer language and all its different trends. Yes it can be confusing but it is history in the making; so beautiful!
15. But most importantly, you know that you're doing the best and most interesting degree possible.
