10 Languages Still Spoken

I found this through Facebook the other day. Awesome! I had heard of Xhosa, Pirahã, and Pawnee, but not the others. I want to learn them all, including the whistle one, but not the one where they seem to kill the outsiders without trying to make any contact!


Tidewater? Hampton Roads?

I finally have the time and a good subject to write!

The area I live in is known to newcomers as Hampton Roads, but to us natives it is, and always will be, Tidewater. I never knew the origin of either name until now. My geography teacher told us the name Hampton Roads had something to do with the waterways as well. This requires some further investigation.


A Language Blog

I found this blog through Facebook while looking through the omniglot fan club page. I'm still looking through, but it looks like it will be a great reference for some harder to reach languages, such as Mongolian, Gothic and Georgian. He doesn't say much though, when he gives grammar stuff it looks like. Check it out anyway.


Starting Over

I didn't like the way I did this before, so I'm starting over with a blank slate. I'm working on  several things right now, but with three days off this week, I should hopefully get them all done and post here.

Here we go.
