Upstate Pronunciations. Gotta have at least one weird-pronunciation post; they’re always popular. Don’t forget, Shawangunk is “Shongum”!
Modulo. Very educational.
Pace. Over a hundred comments on this inoffensive little word!

Proust: The Summing Up. First off, the book is too damn long.
Pushkin and Nabokov. Bathrobe found this detailed analysis tedious, but I remain unrepentant.
Chakobsa. The secret language of Circassian hunters, with much useful and entertaining discussion.
