You see? I'm not the only one.

Apparently I'm not the only linguist who sometimes gets frustrated when people ask, "So how many languages do you speak?"  Enjoy this little slide show that explains why that question works, but doesn't work, for a lot of us.

{{Colorless}} - it's the only way I can give you a hug - I hope you enjoyed it as much as I did.

I confess that I have asked that question (;=(, but I'm happy to see that the question is legit, in that it helps someone to distinguish between different types of linguist.
