* In ''[[Literature/ErastFandorin The Turkish Gambit]]'', when Varvara Suvorova finds herself stranded with no money or documents in a Bulgarian village, she attempts to encourage herself that Bulgarian language is simply Russian with "-ta" added to every word. Fortunately for her, she never gets to find out if it's true, because the first person she encounters speaks fluent Russian.

* Cece Bell's story ''El Deafo'' is based on her own experience as a deaf girl using a Phonic Ear hearing aid system (the early models were godawfully huge and clunky). She feels awkward and like she'll never fit in, but because they work via an amplified sound field broadcasting on an FM band, she discovers she can hear ''everything'' -- including things she's not supposed to. Imagining it as SuperHearing, she starts calling herself El Deafo.
