You can contact me on simon[at]omniglot[dot]com.

If you live in or near Bangor (Gwynedd), or are visiting the area, and fancy some polyglot chat, why not come along to Caffè Nero in the centre of Bangor from 5-7pm on Tuesdays and Saturdays for the Bangor Language Café conversation group, which I set up at the beginning of 2013. The languages we speak depend on who turns up. So far they’ve included English, Welsh, Irish, German, French, Cornish, Dutch, Finnish, Icelandic, Mandarin Chinese and Russian.

    i want to register, simon. and be able to post. i love this site. just discovered it today. my first discovery was “the etymology of ‘clam'” which is the working title of something i have yet to write.all about ignorance being bliss for secret keepers and an assortment o clams [withholding types.]

    i like to imagine what unique accents might sound like .for example, the sound of a norwegian speaking child who was raised in Lebanon from ages 6-12, and then spent the next few years in uganda. and so on. Decoding this speech patterning ala ‘Enry ‘Iggins is of course sheer madness for everyone except for my hero, and master decoder/speech analyst, MUTE-MAN, who because of his superior listening skills, untangles the most complex of speech pattern s AND is often acutely aware of a speakers ‘real-life intention, all of this, to the astonishment of all speaking beings.
    and now simon, i’m off to discover the etymology of ”clamor” and ‘clamour’ and ‘amour’…i love this site.
    GEE

    Interesting points. I don’t accept guest posts for this blog, but do, sometimes, on the Omniglot blog, and you’re welcome to fine the Omniglot group on Facebook, if you haven’t done so already.
