    A short, interesting and fun read on language, that is if you are a bit nerdy like me.

    I'm sorry about the all caps title, Mods. I copied and pasted the title from the article and didn't notice it was in all caps.

    Can you please fix it for me?

    Thanks!

    I mean Im not an expert, but it seems to me like that would be a question because it starts with "is"

    I'd have to say English is up there as one of the weirder languages.

    English doesn't always use the interrogatory to structure a question but neither do most languages I've been exposed to. Mandarin uses ma at the end but things get abbreviated a lot and content and body language are just or more usual.
