Linguistic Oddities: Introduction

I’ve decided, since there are times I don’t really have anything significant to say about politics or the state of the world, that I’m going to do a feature about the oddities of language.  Not just limited to English, but also a little Italian, Japanese, and a tiny bit of ASL (because these are the languages I have a working understanding of).  These will range from pondering about the oddities of how we talk, and dialect differences to just weird little things about the way language functions in society.  I already have a couple entries in mind, so the first few will come in quick succession, but I’ll try to keep this a fairly regular feature. I will take suggestions in comments, so if you have any ideas, feel free to put them in the comments section.
