Those Esperanto ghazals

Skin Horse for 7/27/2012:

It is rumored that in a secret basement laboratory at Language Log Plaza, a similar set of puzzles is under development. Would-be commenters beware! None of the alpha testers have yet conquered the Tunnel of Ergodic Intolerance, not to speak of the Culvert of Proparoxytone Enlightenment.

Meanwhile, some of you may recall Shaenon K. Garrity from our coverage of the role of "Antonio Smith, Forensic Linguist" in her earlier strip Narbonic.

    A friend already sent me that one, and I put it on my office door at the Language Log Analysis and Annotation Annex.

    (Of course, I think his motivation lay at least 50% in the fact that he knows I speak Esperanto.)

    I first discovered Shaenon Garrity's work from a Language Log post discussing Unity's use of "dude" in a Skin Horse strip.
