Language is a virus (refresher)

From Christopher Johnson’s Microstyle:

William S. Burroughs wrote that “language is a virus,” capturing the feeling we sometimes have of being possessed by, rather than possessing, language. (Of course, Burroughs also said that language was “from outer space,” but that was just crazy talk.)

I think Laurie Anderson quoted it better…

Any thoughts?
