Some of you may be wondering why I have put up a blog on the site alongside this discussion forum.
It is intended to give regular contributors the opportunity to ramble on at rather greater length about anything they choose, preferably language-related. Contributions do not have to be deep, or even massively thought-provoking. Quite interesting will do just nicely. The blog is intended to complement the forum, not replace it.
Here is one I put up this evening. I hope you find it mildly entertaining. You can comment on it if you want to. If you are a registered member here, you will already be subscribed there.
So get writing. Bob, how about an article on the reality of living in a notionally bilingual country? Or trolley, what about the oddities of Canadian English? Or tell us why so many Canadians seem to us Brits to have an Irish accent? Or Erik: Why on earth does Wichita exist other than to be a perfect stage for melancholy linemen?
If you are visiting us for the first time, please take a few minutes to read through the articles here. If you wish to post a question, make sure you read the "Guide to posting". This exists as a topic in this forum.
End of topic.
