About the author

IMG_2768I am a blogger and a writer, fascinated by all things language and linguistics. I am particularly interested in linguistic creativity – in prose, in poetry, in the media, in advertising, and in everyday conversation. I have an MA in Applied Linguistics from Birkbeck College, University of London. Originally a materials scientist, I have a PhD from EPFL in Lausanne, Switzerland. In my day job, I support academic colleagues at University College London with their grant writing.

  3. Hi, I just wanted to say I love your blog and I am so glad I read that WordPress Daily Post now. The “like” button just didn’t seem adequate after the first 3 posts I read 🙂

  5. Haha I love that you’re learning Mandarin 🙂 it’s difficult I know but Cantonese has even more tones! I speak both but I’m the most comfortable in English. I’ve seen Westerners excel in Mandarin, you’ll get there. Just fly over to Beijing or Shanghai for a good month or two and you’ll do just fine 🙂

  6. I read 2 blogs, yours, and one more. Your’s is important because I’m working on a novel. Every blog gives me more insight into the English language than all the English classes I’ve taken! Thank you! Just wanted you to know. 😊💙👍
