Radio Omniglot is a podcast I started 2018 to share information about language, linguistics, interesting words and phrases, and my own and other people’s experiences of learning and using languages.

It currently features the following series:

  • Adventures in Etymology, which explores the origins of words, and finds interesting connections within and between languages.
  • Celtic Pathways, which explores connections between Celtic languages, and look for words with Celtic roots in other languages
  • Omniglot News, which summaries the latest developments from the world of Omniglot each week.

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, and write songs and tunes.

More about me.

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.
