Two neat Mandarin-related news bits
So, I'm a bit of a language nut (studying linguistics), and I have some RSS feeds set up through Google Reader. Two of them are language and linguistics related. I'm assuming the increased posting I see related to Mandarin and China is because of the Olympics--I keep skimming them and keep seeing more and more on Mandarin! In the past few days, I found two neat posts from Language Log that I wanted to share.
