    Brilliant crossover between RIvers of London & Discworld. Perfect tone, and just exactly right in every way.

    Summary

    English is no pure language. It likes to shake down other languages for spare verbs and nouns.

    All languages borrow. Steal. Blend. Overwrite where they can. Struggle to sing against the silence.

    But hear now the tale of a family. A member of a vast tribe. Now is the time to gather the singers of tales. Go to the beginning. As far back as we can go. See the how each ancestor leaves a note in the song.

    Bookmarker's Notes

    Linguistic Assignations is the first story I've read that takes linguistics, history, and geeky word play in such a wonderful direction. Besides, it's the kind of story one either loves or bounces off ... so it needs wide recommendation for the folk who are going to love it to hear of it.
