Utterly fabulous. I like how you write his quietude, and Uhura's patient scientific mind.

Beautiful fic. I studied a little of linguistics many years ago and found it fascinating. You have used the language and concepts of the subject so creatively to describe this budding relationship. It's perfect for the unusual 'romance' between these two.

Lovely story.

I loved this! Your linguistic theme was exceptionally well done and fitting to these characters for whom less flowery is somehow more flowery.

How original! Maybe it's because I'm an amateur linguist myself, and maybe it's because my methods of flirting are the kind that are normally imperceptible to outside observers (darn shyness!)... but this fic put a huge grin on my face. You really presented this in a way that made me feel like I was Uhura, thinking what she was thinking and seeing what she was seeing. I'll be looking up more of your work :)

This was brilliant, just so you know. Uhura's point of view of Spock using linguist terminology...bravo.

I am very impressed. You were able to capture Uhura's understanding of Spock through intelligence and knowledge. I don't believe there is much 'fluff' between them anyways, so I think your story is very true to their characters. My only complaint is that there is no dialogue. Other than that, this is one of my favorites.

I don't know that much of linguistics but it's fab to have a fic that reinforces her skill as much as the romance.

No suffering here! I knew from the moment I read the definition of prosody that this story was going to be better than most. When I got to the bit about Uhura breaking down nonverbal communication into phonemes and reassembling them into morphemes and starting to form hypotheses about Spock's prosody, I knew it was going to rock. I learned a fascinating new perspective on linguistics (I don't usually have the privilege of learning theoretically weighty concepts from fanfic!) and you demonstrated Uhura's intelligence, while telling us nothing conclusive (but everything intriguing!) about Spock.

You continue to be the best Spock/Uhura writer I've encountered. I really like this story, because you keep them both thoroughly in-character. You suggest a perfectly logical scenario for their Academy interactions that would make the events in the movie a reasonable next step. I also like the knowledge that the interaction that you focus on in this story would be entirely lost on the casual viewer to this scene.
