Language is like geology. Novelties periodically erupt, some of which remain a feature of the landscape, but most of which subside. More commonly, language is a collection of tectonic plates that separate or grind together very slowly over a long period as some features of the landscape erode and others metamorphose.

Eric Lippert, explainer extraordinnaire, has started a series that we might call "Fabulous Adventures in Music." Knowing Eric, we can assume that his descriptions of, say, the physics of music will be as enlightening and entertaining as his exegeses on programming and math and code security. Check it out.
