A misogynous linguist of yore
Made big headlines like no one before:
Only lads could express
Nae a lass had a say in this lore.
—Cailín na Luimní
Doctor Johnson, as quick as a wink,
To a lady, while out for a drink,
When she said, “Sir, you smell,”
Responded to tell
Her, “No, Madam, you smell—I stink!”
There once was a phonotactician
Who arranged phones with great erudition,
And the phones that would not
Fit so well in his chart,
He condemned straight to phonoperdition.
—Morris Swadesh III

But calque is a different formation.
It gives me great sorrow
That we had to borrow
The word to describe that relation!
Forms as derived
Simply learned twice
