Cute Evil Linguist

“Don’t mock my diabolikility!” –me
“It’s just one of those quotes that’s easier said than written.” –Melanie (if I spelled it “diabolicality,” or “diabolicility,” no one would pronounce it right. Probably most people won’t anyway, but it’s more likely now. I wonder, is the way I pronounced it evidence of a change in the underlying representation of the phonemes?)
