Jabberwocky Words in Linguistics:

 Making Sense through Nonsense.  Making Sense of Nonsense.


“If I had a world of my own, everything would be nonsense. Nothing would be what it is because everything would be what it isn't.  And contrary wise, what is, it wouldn’t be. And what it wouldn’t be, it would. You see?"

-Lewis Carroll, Alice in Wonderland
