Linguine (/lɪŋˈɡwiːni/; Italian: [liŋˈɡwiːne]) is a type of pasta similar to fettuccine and trenette but elliptical in section rather than flat. It is about 4 millimetres (0.16 in) in width, which is wider than spaghetti but not as wide as fettuccine. The name linguine means “little tongues” in Italian, where it is a plural of the feminine linguina.
Linguistics is the scientific study of language, and involves an analysis of language form, language meaning, and language in context.
Linguistics = studies of linguini.

I think I confuse ‘linguistics’ as the ‘study of pasta’ a little too much.

I performed cunning linguini on your mother. It was far too cheesy for my taste, and I’ve never heard of putting fish in a pasta. But whatever. OPs mom does as OPs mom…is?
