Wednesday reading — pronouns and languages

What I've been reading

I read Ancillary Sword, the sequel to Ancillary Justice. It was fun, and I felt like I finally got a better picture of what the Raadchai are all about in their day to day existence, which was more obscure in the first book.

I read The Secret Language, which was the only book of her own that editor Ursula Nordstrom ever wrote, which was apparently highly autobiographical. It is a classic boarding school story, and I have to say, I wasn't expecting the eponymous secret language to have syntax or anything, but I still felt slightly cheated that it only has three words.
