Thoughts, writing, jokes, music, recipes, and family. Stay awhile.

One of the classes this semester is Historical Linguistics. It looks at several topics including figuring out what languages are related, meaning they came from the same original language (think French from Latin), and how to reconstruct the original language. It's kind of fun, like little puzzles to solve. It hasn't convinced me to switch my area of focus, but it's certainly a rather fun topic.
