Book-reading nightmare / a never-ending story / keeps adding pages.

Twoku: Language book / keeps adding pages / unending.

This post is a blend of a recent comment from my daughter and an ongoing pet peeve of my late father. My daughter was reading a long book and she expressed her feeling that it kept adding pages…and my father refused to acknowledge that we speak a changing language, and that all language is changing and evolving…  The image here is not just of any book – it’s a dictionary – a story of one language at a moment in time, and yes, it keeps adding pages (well, in the next edition anyway)…  🙂
