Fun Little Logic Puzzle
In Semantics & Pragmatics today, we got a little puzzle meant to demonstrate the distinction between use and mention.*

One word is a phrase of 2 words, but every English phrase has 3 words.

*That probably makes no sense to non-linguists and/or non-philosophers. Don't worry about it. Pay attention to the puzzle.
