Well, poop. *stamps foot petulantly*
I'm really in love with this and would be loath to give it up. Aren't there
any languages that do similarly?
Now that I think of it, McGill is supposed to have a hella good linguistics
faculty, especially if you happen to be interested in neurolinguistics. And
the cost of living (and tuition, for that matter) in Montreal is *much*
cheaper than in Toronto.
