    Pitas: it’s a tip, pit, tap, pat, sit, sip, sap, spit, spat, as is at it.

    Welcome, Jeannine M, may all you blogging here be gracious!

    Hey, I didn’t even realize I was welcoming a fellow linguist. iQue bueno! (Though I may have to rib her a bit about how weird Spanish looks for being the only language in the world that does that inverted punctuation thing.)

      And it doesn’t help that this serif font makes the “i” look ridiculously obvious.

      according to Wikipedia, they are also used in Waray-Waray (spoken in the Philippines) and occasionally in Catalan for emphasis. But you are right, I never stopped to think about this before.

    Thank you so much for the warm welcome! I’ll be very eager to post here, once I figure out the technical aspects! And Julia, I’m afraid I know nothing at all about linguistics – I do literary scholarship. But I’d like to learn some linguistics some day! :)
