How linguists listen

One of the best things about how we are trained is that we listen differently.  To help capture this, I have written a haiku (sort of).  There may be a syllable off here or there, but you get the idea.

Linguists listen to:

what was said, and wasn’t
what you coulda said but didn’t
and why that matters

🙂

 

Hope you enjoy!  And if you try to use this, let me know all about it!!
