When people ask me what I do, I usually tell them that I write and talk about languages for a living, mainly on my website. This leads to more questions about what exactly my website is about, how I make money from it, and what I spend my days doing.
In this episode I try to answer these questions, and explain how Omniglot came to be, what my work involves, and how it generates revenue. I also suggest some ways you could turn your interests into online business.
The tunes featured in the episode are:
Goosing Around / Gwyddio o Gwmpas
Spring at Last / Gwanwyn o’r Diwedd
The recording I use in the podcast was generated by MuseScore (See a PDF of the score). The recording below features me on all the instruments.
Blue Skies / Awyr Las
In Episode 12 I slipped in a couple of made-up facts and challenged you to spot them. They were:
- There is a version of Cornish called Kernewek Gwir (True/Real Cornish) that is a continuation of traditional Cornish.
- There are a few parrots and other birds who can speak a bit of Cornish.
Although I made these up, there are people who believe that Cornish never ceased to be spoken, and it’s possible that someone has trained their parrot to speak some Cornish.
