This was nicely written and expressed. How attractions could surface with just the attentive way of listening and pure interest. Lovely fic!

This story reminds me of my favorite professor from back in my college days. He was very intelligent and demanding teacher; so much so that I didn't do very well in his courses, but I loved how much I learned. I thought it a shame when he retired.

Lovely story.

Hmm. That's really good. I actually never thought about the way language is taught, but it makes perfect sense. And the approach/realizations are perfectly in character for each. Thank you :)
Bil chapter 1 . 12/30/2009
Beautiful. Really beautiful. I love her thoughts on language and how she reacts to Spock's teaching. It's a great fic that gives a wonderful background to their relationship in the movie. Really, really well done.

I really like this image of the intelligent and insightful Uhura paying close attention and really hearing Spock. Great short piece.

Beautifully written. Both a great characterstudy, and a ficlet that has something intelligent to say about language and culture... Thanks for sharing, It was a joy to read

Bravo! Masterful job; again, another insight into linguistics! I love how this pairing is teaching me things about a fascinating topic. :)

I always enjoy your stories and recommendations very much, and this was a lovely piece, perfect just as it is. I think it's a beautiful idea that Spock lays out the logic of alien thought and language on its own terms, and that Uhura rejoices in the chance to truly explore foreign thoughts and cultures through the structure of words. It's complicated, interesting, and smart. The closing lines, in which she learns to know Spock through his subtle, unspoken language, fits both characters perfectly. Very nicely done.

Thanks so much for writing!
Mackenzie chapter 1 . 6/2/2009

It is such a great concept, and's just amazing!
Mrs.Moony86 chapter 1 . 5/23/2009
Very good story. I liked the ending where Uhura thinks "I understand you better than anyone else here will ever try to" and that Spock is looking back thinking the same thing.

That part for some reason was very poignant for me.

I enjoyed Uhura's thoughts on language. How you can not hammer your beliefs into someone else’s language. And that textbooks were written by humans for humans. That is so true.

Good job, I would love to see more from you.
