Tue, 24 Feb 2009 21:21:09 +0000http://threesixty360.wordpress.com/?p=1907#comment-1886Being a word person, I disliked math all through school, but now I am coming to appreciate (and maybe even understand, to a small degree) the beauty and complexity of mathematics beyond just arithmetic and pre-calculus. But you are right about how patterns define both mathematics and linguistics, and really do make them related to one another. I am fairly good at recognizing and understanding patterns, and so I’m excited to try out some of these practice problems on the NACLO site. I printed off several PDFs, to practice on just for the fun of it. ðŸ™‚

I hadn’t heard about these contests either until yesterday — I was really excited when I realized how many practice problems there were. I think there are some real underlying similarities between linguistics and mathematics. (That is probably too simplistic, I realize, but I like the pattern-finding aspect of both.)

I stumbled across this blog in a search for Inuktitut. I am not a mathematician, but I am an amateur linguist, and I found this to be a very interesting post. I also appreciate the link to the NACLO and IOL–I had never heard of such a thing before, but now that I know of its existence, I will keep tabs on these competitions. Thanks!
