It’s been far too long since I’ve posted anything. Here are some links I’ve found interesting.
A superb blog by a brilliant former classmate of mine with his thoughts on language. Come see some old maps. Benny Lewis, one of the many polyglots telling Americans how to learn languages has some good solid advice. Language diversity, the paucity of true language universals, and what this means for our understanding of cognitive science. Glenn Greenwald reviewing a movie on the dangers of obedience to authority. How to deal with creepy dudes. Homophobia and Hip-hop. The problem with men explaining things to women.
