To the initiated, a very funny set of essays which examine taboo phrases according using arcane generative grammars. To me, as a grad student, I took it as much a spoof on such grammars as on language analysis, but perhaps the contributors meant it seriously. ( )

Delightful for even a non-linguist to read. ( )
