My "other" blog

I've been made a featured blogger on the Betterhumans site, so I'll be posting stuff there. Actually, this, here, will still be my primary blog: what I post over there will likely be largely a sub-set of what is posted here (with most of my brief comments just appearing here, along with all the personal stuff involving friends, family, and so on). So there's no need for my faithful readers to migrate. Still it might be worth a look over at the other blog now and then. I may get more responses, as it's a higher profile site, so feel free to join in over there. Also, I just made my first post, which is quite a detailed self-intro.

An odd thing jumped out at me while reading your Betterhumans post. It's interesting (well, at least to me) that "graduate student" and "post-grad" are synonymous. Some nights I can't sleep for being tormented by verbs like dust (does it mean to add or to remove dust?) or cleave (to join or to split?). The case of "graduate" and "post-grad" seems to be a similar effect but organized the opposite way: two superficially antonymous words which actually point to the same meaning, instead of a single word which thanks to etymological accident has two antonymous meanings.

If I had more caffeine right now I could probably remember what linguists call this.

Like "flammable" and "inflammable"?

"Graduate student" is what you guys say over in the US, and I tend to fall in with this usage on the internet. Here in Australia, we say "postgraduate student".

Both make some kind of etymological sense, n'est-ce pas? Student who has already gradutated; or, student who is no longer an undergraduate, but pursuing further studies "post" graduation. But yeah, different underlying logics.
