How a small group of gamers has been able to “set the terms of debate in a $100 billion industry, even as they send women like Brianna Wu into hiding and show every sign that they intend to keep doing so until all their demands are met.”
much doge. so linguistics. wow.
I have written a grammar of doge: here’s a highly informative summary picture. The full article is up right now at The Toast and I’m very excited about it.
Here’s a note on something that I couldn’t fit into the Toast article: the main exception to the shockingly conventional spelling typically found in the doge meme (especially as compared to LOLcat) is precisely in those doge phrases that don’t match the typical pattern of beginning with so, much, many, such, or very, for example in “sekund generashun” above. I created the image so I might be a bit biased here, but it would have felt wrong to spell that part conventionally. However, text-only examples of doge tend to stick very rigidly to the doge phrase syntax and have correspondingly un-creative spelling.

“Remember how it was when we kissed? Armfuls and armfuls of light thrown right at us. A rope dropping down from the sky. How can the word love and the word life even fit in the mouth?”
