It feels like a glossary, and not in a good way.

Thanks to Sary - Happy Bday! So far it's a luscious romp through those tantalizing and titillating old liberal arts of logic, grammar and rhetoric, compliments of Sister Miriam Joseph. Exquisitely crafted and thoroughly Aristotelian (a mixed blessing for a Platonist, although I’ve always admired him for developing formal logic, and there’s something to be said for all-encompassing and uncompromisingly systematic systematizing).

Well, that wasn't really what I was expecting. The title led me to believe it would be a cool discussion of the nature of language, but it's really just a grammar. And it reads like a grammar (i.e. not all that exciting). *shrug*

Post Note: Why do grammars have to be so dull?! Language is exciting and fun, so what can't the books explaining how they work reflect that? Yoicks.
