Like Gareth I use it too, typically for teaching though at times in presentations, and really like the cartoons page.
Many thanks for all you do & Happy Thanksgiving!

Further to Hal's lament that nobody seems to notice the cartoons page - just thought I'd chime in and say that I do! I use it as a teaching resource all the time ...

They are great examples to prod my undergraduates with, in order to get at some of the underlying assumptions they have about LP and language more broadly. Getting them to articulate *why* a cartoon actually works/is funny is much more effective as a strategy than teaching "from the front".

So, thank you Hal - and please keep them coming!

Best,

Gareth
