For All Language Lovers...

I got this sent to me on Facebook, and thought I must share it here as well. Two of my blogging friends came especially to mind... Rae and Scriptor Senex.

Stephen Fry Kinetic Typography - Language

I listened to the first 3 minutes and liked it, after he got to the nouns and verbs he lost me. very intersitng and its great how he did the words doing their thing.

Thanks for sharing that, i did enjoy. I have just been reading 'My Name is Mina' by David Almond and I loved the little bits in it where Mina relishes words, both their meaning and their sounds, and plays around with them, like Archaeopteryx and Pneumatisation.
Everything Stephen Fry says makes so much sense, I loved the fact that he is unapologetically intelligent.
much love

This is strange and unusual, must have taken a long time to do! A bit dizzying! I'm thinking you are definatly NOT a word snob, it must be great to know so many different languages in all forms!
