Biting the wax tadpole

As an English major, who studied a boatload of German, a respectable amount of Spanish, a little Latin and a tiny bit of French, languages always intrigue me. So when I discovered Biting the Wax Tadpole: Confessions of a Language Fanatic, I was very excited.

This book could be called: Interesting Facts about Language. Elizabeth Little keeps it light and full of fun while making comparisons between languages around the world.  It is chock full of trivia about different languages.  The book has chapters about each of the parts of speech yet the book is accessible and enjoyable to read.
