God’s Grammar Cactus

Found via the net, this cartoon:

Inflectional morphology and (somewhat absurdly) social context.

The strip is called Gods of the Moon, whose author has a website that says

I am currently a journalism student sitting in a classroom learning about WordPress blogs…

but offers no name that I can find. I think the name on the strip is Jesse Tampau, but I have trouble reading it and can’t find anything under that name.

    The name looks more like Jesse Tahirali when I compare it to the letters of the web site on the right hand side.

    Also, the name is clearer on this cartoon.

    Thanks to two commenters for identifying the cartoonist as Jesse Tahirili. Now from Ned Deily on Facebook, a note that he has a Twitter account and his own webpage, where he writes:

    The latest from Jesse Tahirali (@JesseTahirali). Now I’m a journalism student back at Western University. London, Ontario
