@!

Filed under: Gender,language — judgesnineteen @ 5:41 pm

I don’t know how long this has been around unbeknownst to me, but I just saw the @ sign, whose name I only know in French oddly, used in the word Latin@s to show the masculine o or the feminine a. I love it! It was at RaceWire. Funny, since I just commented on Female Impersonator (still in moderation) about the annoying-ness of grammatical gender. Perhaps I’ll try to explain my feelings on that topic soon.

  1. Your comment got through moderation as soon as I saw it. And I like this post. And the @. Great! I’ll have to start using that. 🙂
