Back to the books teaching again is making me nostalgic to read Shakespeare, Hemingway, even Joyce again. I'm even really enjoying taking apart the structures of the language to teach them to my students. Translating has also been making me yearn to expand my vocabulary...so the linguist nerd that I am recently signed up for Miriam-Webster's e-mail word of the day. The e-mail is complete with a definition, examples of use, and a history of the word (my favorite part). I love it!
