Blogging About Languages

What to do? What to do?

The first post will always be the most difficult. Before embarking on a journey you have to know where you're going... if you don't you're a fool.

I hope to put everything (and I mean everything) I can about languages into this blog. They're fantastically fascinating things, I'll briefly tell you a few reasons why...

Language and history are intertwined. There's a reason most of the English words for food are of French origin. Why do I write in English and not Latin?

Language reflects culture. Why do Eskimos have so many words for snow? They don't, but you understand the point I'm trying to make...

Language is science. How do you define something without words? Well... with pictures obviously... but words do help.

There's so many more reasons but I said I'd be brief.

Also you can find us on Facebook , Twitter, Google+ and Pinterest.
