I have been called a geek, but I do not deserve it, yet.

Next time someone tells me, “you are such a geek” I will point them to the quote below and say, regretfully, I wish I were, but I am still just learning.

Then I said, “Hmm, I have an intuition that if I looked at the historical linguistics of Māori, I could probably get a better fit. Nah, that’s too much work.”

Then I said, “Wait. Māori is a Polynesian language, it’s not hardly any work at all. The entire sound correspondence for the whole language family probably fits on half a page!”

If true – this is some nice and impressive work.
