Your Ass


Merely a link today, to this linguistics essay on the use of the phrase your ass, as in get your ass in here. After all, any essay that contains the line

In 3 we argue that your ass’s unusual behavior is due to its semantic and social functions and that it can be accommodated once these are taken into account.

has to be worth reading.
