[BKARTS] "The Solid Form of Language" by Robert Bringhurst

[After writing my essay, I went back to my check my mail and look at
what I found! Very highly recommended.  --JS]

dot-font: Solid Language
Robert Bringhurst's seminal essay about the nature and classification of
written language is now available, revised and updated, in the form of a
small, well-made book.

"Writing is the solid form of language, the precipitate," writes Robert
Bringhurst. "Speech comes out of our mouths, our hands, our eyes in
something like a liquid form and then evaporates at once." This image
gives him the title for the essay in which it appears, "The Solid Form
of Language," a remarkable meditation on the nature of written language
that Bringhurst subtitles, "An Essay on Writing and Meaning."
