My name is Steve; I'm an editor by profession and a linguist by training. I have studied many languages but am reasonably comfortable only in French, Spanish, and Russian (and of course English), though I can read most Romance languages, German, and Greek with some facility. My blog, also called Languagehat, is at http://languagehat.com.
