Notes from a Linguistic Mystic

Imagine you’re sending an email to a colleague confirming two separate appointments with that person. It is completely plausible and understandable to end this email with:

I’ll see you then then then, then!

Better still, if you’re saying that you’d rather have one appointment at a different time than two separate ones, you could say:

Then I’d rather see you then than then then then.

I love language.
