It's not just a blog carnival; it's the law! ~ a fool in the forest

Blawg Review Lingo

Bloggers have a lingo of their own, much of which is now in the vernacular, as blogging has become a pop culture phenomenon.
There's a list of blogging terms on Wikipedia. It covers the more common phrases and words. This is a good handy resource to have for those among us who are beginning to study the medium. When in Rome, you better speak Roman, uh, I mean Italian! Yeah, that's it. [via]
Those who follow Blawg Review are already familiar with these terms:
Blawg - a blog focusing on commentary about the law, generally written by a law professor, law student, or lawyer. A portmanteau of "blog" and "law."

Blog Carnival - a blog article that contains links to other articles covering a specific topic. Most blog carnivals are hosted by a rotating list of frequent contributors to the carnival, and serve to both generate new posts by contributors and highlight new bloggers posting matter in that subject area.
Every culture develops ways to communicate nuances, sometimes with strange words and gestures. And, speaking of the Italian chin-flick, blog carnivals, blawgs, and law bloggers who have a special way with words, be sure to check out Blawg Review #52, presented by our favorite goombah, David Giacalone.
