engirsh foonee (actually linguistiscs)

wahahah this cracks me up. i'm reading the ccw for ling 100 and here's the boring cited part if you're that interested in looking it up:

Pinker, Steve, "How language works"
the language instinct
US: william morrow and company, 1994 ISBN:0688121411, p.87
copyright: william morrow and company/ access copyright, 1994

i don't know, i just copied that from the front of the ccw.
anyuways, heres the funny part, talking about sentences.

This sentence no verb.
This is not a complete. This either.

i read it and burst out laughing. i think i had too much dessert (sugar)....mmmmmm cake.....
