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.
