Breakfast in America.

On my way to the supermarket, I noticed this sign:

dennyssign

It got me to wondering.  What if this sign meant what I’d initially thought that it had meant, and Denny’s had suddenly wanted to appeal to linguist nerds?

How long do you think that it’s going to be before Denny’s puts out a menu in Classical Greek?

Or how about ancient Hebrew?

Gaelic?

Or best yet, Proto-Indo-European?

That’s what I want to see:  a Denny’s menu in PIE.

Or, at the very least, a dessert menu.

 

Linguists don’t make much money, but linguists gotta eat.
