    A famous linguist was giving a lecture and happened to mention the following item:

    “In some languages, a double negative reinforces the negative aspect of the statement*; in others, a double negative results in a positive statement. There are, however, no cases in which a double positive yields a negative.”
    To which a wiseacre in the back row said, “Yeah, yeah.”

    *This used to be the case in English but was lost during the Middle English period (1150-1470).

    Right now, the song “Nobody Like Me,” by The Human Beinz, is playing in my head. That’s the one that starts with simeone chanting the word “no” about 30 times. (Or is that song titled “Nobody BUT Me”?)

    Wait! Now a double negative means that a no-no- a yes… er, uh, not, it means a single no-yes, er, ah, yes, a double no-yes would be, uh. hmm. a single double negative, or, ah, uh, er, – this does not, not make no, no sense?
    “that that is is that that is not is not is not that it it is”
    punctuate please!
