I am your average twentysomething American who loves to talk your ear off about languages. Since I don’t want to be “that girl” at dinner parties, I’m offloading most of my linguistics geekery onto this blog, where I hope people will find it both fun and informative.

Without revealing too much of my offline identity, I’m from the East Coast of the US, and I hold a Master’s degree in Applied Linguistics. My L1 is English, and since my childhood I have studied (to wildly varying degrees of proficiency): Hebrew, Spanish, Latin, Ancient Greek, Mandarin Chinese, and (right now) Arabic. Once I get a good handle on Arabic, I might try Russian. Or Vietnamese. Or Hindi. Or Swahili. Or heck, why not all of them?
