Personal Info[edit]

My name is Jonathan North Washington, and my personal website can be found at; I also maintain a site for fun at I work on Turkic languages and linguistics—especially phonetics, phonological theory, historical linguistics, descriptive linguistics, and RBMT. I used to be a conlanger in my free time.


I claim responsibility in some way for the content of the following pages—by beginning them, writing them, contributing heavily to them, adding picture(s), or some combination thereof (articles in progress/stubs in italics, and articles I've written the bulk of in bold).

Milestones and Awards[edit]

  • I have a user ID of "111800". I think that's kind of neat :)
  • On 21 March 2009, I made my 1000th edit by adding the WikiProject Central Asia template to the article on the Ordos dialect of Mongol. This was part of a WPCA templating spree during some free time I had due to spring break.
  • Original Barnstar.pngI hearby grant you this barnstar for the splendid contributions you made on "Acadian subjects".Wikipedia User:gtmo 14:13, 25 May 2006
