Links are very interesting.
To me, they are a metalanguage, a kind of counter-narrative to the post discourse.
(Yes I know this is over the top academic but it is Christmas).
Links are like metaphors in poems, they draw your attention out of the poem and into somewhere else.
I like the way Dr Joolz does her links - she writes this and this and we don't know what this is.
I think that is called deixis but we need the linguists for that.
ALso, I like doing what I call oxymoronic links.
Do you remember oxymorons at school (no they weren't what you think)
They are two opposites put together.
This is when I am writing about something, like sound, and my links are to silence.
I did that in the post yesterday.
Actually that is why I think I like links.
They subvert the post.
PS Can you work out the connections between the links in this post?
