Eco: The Search for the Perfect Language (1995)

Bibliofreak points out in his review of Umberto Eco‘s The Search for the Perfect Language in August:

Chapter one discusses Bible stories, and chapter two gets into Kabbalah and Gematria.  People interested in Gematria and it’s mathematico-linguistic mysteries should not miss this.  I think I just “mathematico” up…but don’t you always us “o” and not “al” in the first word in a double adjective hyphen?  Sadly, Eco does not answer this.  Chapter six will pick up on Kabbalah again.
