timeywimeywords:

Hello!  I’m a Linguistics major at Western Oregon  University and a somewhat recently addicted Whovian.  When I heard about the final project we’ll be doing for my Linguistics 370: Discourse and Text class, I decided to pick something awesome!  As we talked more and more about metaphor, and how we use so much metaphor talking about time (using space and direction, etc) I thought doing an exploration on how the Doctor uses metaphor when he talks about Space and Time in the abstract. 
Anyway!  This is the blog where I’m going to collect my date in one place, which will hopefully help me see patterns and new ideas I didn’t have before.  I’m going to be focussing only on the Doctors since the 2005 reboot, because they’re the ones I’ve seen.  In the future, if I continue this project after my course is over, I might go back and watch the Classic Who episodes to explore how the language of time and space was dealt with back then.
If you have any questions, please ask!  I’m completely open to discussing my project, and I’d love all the help I can get!

Nice. I bet we’d all love to hear what you discover about how/if the language changes. Publish your results on Tumblr?
