In the beginning

I keep coming across new-to-me words, unusual phrases and constructions, and other small items of potential philological interest. And I don't really have anywhere to put 'em.

So I'm gonna start keeping them in this here blog.

Feel free to post comments saying that you've seen an item before, or that you haven't, or that it's a common construction where you come from, or similar phrases, or whatever else you feel like saying.

I may later invite others to join me in this endeavor. For now, it's just an experiment.
