TITLE: Which Part of Speech Am I? AUTHOR: Eugene Wallingford DATE: October 30, 2016 9:25 AM DESC: ----- BODY: I saw a passage attributed to Søren Kierkegaard that I might translate as:
The life of humanity could very well be conceived as a speech in which different people represented the various parts of speech [...]. How many people are merely adjectives, interjections, conjunctions, adverbs; how few are nouns, verbs; how many are copula?
This is a natural thing to ponder around my birthday. It's not a bad thing to ask myself more often: Which part of speech will I be today? -----
