You're a language nerd when people use characters from other languages as emoticons, and
you know what language they're from.

Bonus nerd points when you know how to pronounce them.

You are the king of nerds if you then send a message to the person in that language, and
then have to explain to them that it's the language whose character they just used as an
emote.

I know I'm a language nerd when spending 3 hours listening to, and translating, Finnish music seems like a perfect Friday night activity.

when you set a day aside to work on your thesis, study four languages instead and it still seems like a perfectly productive day.

...you can accurately pronounce no less than 4 different kinds of R and describe which languages use each different one.

...you wouldn't be surprised to learn there are even more ways to pronounce R than the 4 different ones you already know.

You know that you're a language nerd when you give your dad a slice of bacon simply
because he said something in Latin. This is one slice out of two total slices of bacon,
mind you.
