suppletion, anyone?

I haven't yet gotten into the habit of just linking to someone else's entire article, but  this new post from Anatoly Liberman on why the present 'go' and past 'went' are such different sorts of words captured my interest so I thought I'd share it with you before it falls too far down the blog scroll to remember.

Besides, it can't be a bad thing to read a little Liberman to start off the year. And certainly not the worst...Bad/worst--he tackles this one too.


  1. I posted something here the other day, but I see it didn't survive the journey. I can't remember the whole comment now, but I will just say quickly here that Liberman's article was a great read. Thanks for sharing that.

  2. Julie is well worth knowing, even if he does put this little blog to shame.
