pants!verse is going to be referenced in an academic paper.

HAHAHAHAHA.

*ahem*

The paper, which will be written by nenya_kanadka, is a linguistics paper no less (extra squeee!). She's talking about the use of ! to compound words in fandom, like pants!verse, mini!otp, evil!sexy!Lizzie, etc. Anyone have any idea where that convention came from or other random geeky knowledge about it to help her out?

... man. I miss linguistics. Also, the pants!verse.
