About Radio Omniglot
Radio Omniglot features a monthly podcast about language and related topics, a weekly Adventures in Etymology series, which explores the origins of words, and a weekly Omniglot News series, which summaries the latest developments on Omniglot, the online encyclopedia of writing systems and languages.
I’m also interested in featuring other people on the podcast. So if you’ve learnt languages, are learning languages, believe you can’t learn languages, work with languages in an capacity, or are just interested in language and words, and would like to take part in the podcast, you can contact me at:
Who am I?
My name is Simon Ager, I live in Bangor in North Wales and earn a living from my website, Omniglot. I’ve studied quite a few languages, and also linguistics. My other main passion is music – I play various instruments, sing in choirs, and write songs and tunes.
What’s an Omniglot?
Omniglot is a word I coined back in 1998. Originally it was the name of a web design and translation business I tried to set up, and it later became the name of my online encyclopedia of writing systems and languages.
