List: Books about language

I was a language nerd long before I knew what being a nerd meant. This list collects nonfiction and fiction where language plays a loadbearing role. Books like Because Internet or 100 Ways to Improve Your Writing qualify obviously, but so does Babel 17, for entirely different reasons.

This list is short because I’m still working on tagging books I read in the past, but we’re going to get there.
