A Bit Of An Explanation

I am not a professional. Not anywhere near it. But I like to think that some little observations I have about language and the social construction of it are worthwhile.

Some of these notes were originally written for acquaintances with no linguistic experience whatsoever, so please be patient through the explanations of basic concepts, and the simplistic tone.

Songs In Languages I Don't Speak - Round 5: A Merced De La Lluvia

L.I.D.S.: Spanish!

I'll admit: I really don't like Spanish as a language. It's got all my worst points against it - gendered, Romance language, distinction between formal and informal "you", and so popular in America that people sometimes refuse to give other languages a chance.

But this song, and this band, is awesome.
