We hear things retrospectively when we have understood them - Marcel Proust
An intriguing little toy. Makes you wonder what else they are playing around at, given the apparently enormous speeds this works at."Gender" appears to have peaked and might even be experiencing a down-turn. I hope so, to the extent that I am henceforth imposing a personal moratorium in an attempt to help it on its way."Fuck" is the most interesting. (Come on, admit you tried it!).You seem to have a rather odd view of what sociologists do for a living...
SV - Actually I didn’t try “fuck”, but “war” is an interesting one if you go back to 1500. I don’t have any particular view of sociologists (yet), but if I happened to be one, I know I’d be fascinated by this kind of tool. It must be worth a paper or two at least, although I'm not sure if sociologists make much use of language as a parameter of social change.
