When you don't even remember what's normal to know about language to the point where you have long, passionate conversations with your friends about if people realize certain sounds are similar in certain ways.

When you try to get your friends to learn languages so you can vicariously experience the fun of the language through them.

When a weekend you thought you weren't going to enjoy becomes one of the better ones because you get to talk about and in foreign languages a significant amount.

...when you apparently emanate language nerdery from every pore to the point that total strangers address you in foreign languages without trying the local language first.

I think I like Linguanerd the best! That would be a cool username.

When you even consider referring to this thread as "like, totally my crack."

When you enjoy your teachers talking about current events because the only news you get is through your foreign language studies so it helps reinforce your vocabulary by reminding you of all the words you learned.
