A Linguist Explains the Grammar of Doge. Wow.
Funny and suprisingly informative article exploring how linguists approach language and shifts in dialect using doge as an example from the field: 


Doge speak is clearly composed of subunits which are divided by a period in running text, which I’m going to calldoge phrases. The period is optional in images, but in that case the phrases are scattered artistically around the picture. Here are some examples of doge phrases:
such drift
much dignity
very leeder
many robe
much infinity
so gif
very guitar
such fall
so trick
much feels
very sad
many happy
such pbs
very art
There are also a smaller number of single-word doge phrases, chiefly:
wow
amaze
excite
A minimal doge utterance contains at least two but often three 2-word doge phrases, followed by a single-word doge phrase (most commonly wow). Additional phrases and variants can be added, especially for the sake of cultural references, such as can’t believe it’s not doge or dogeway to heaven but they are not what makes an utterance recognizably doge.

Wow. Such anthropology. Much learn. 
Am I doing this right? We’ll have to wait for the official ethnography to truly know.
