Hello! I'm Stephen from Manchester. I'm a curious creature whose interests include languages, linguistics, science, history, mythology, philosophy, politics, literature and to a lesser extent maths and vexillology. I'm also a massive Manchester United fan.
I have studied French, Russian, Czech and Turkish as well as Old Norse and Old and Middle French at university. I also enjoy learning (about) other languages and have looked into many other languages to various degrees, such as Portuguese, Swedish, Swahili, Esperanto, Ancient Greek and Classical Nahuatl.
Languages listed below are those that have a place in my physical library (more or less in order of acquisition):
- French (Modern, Middle and Old), Russian, Czech, Portuguese, Old Norse, Latin (Classical and Vulgar), Ancient Greek, Spanish, Mandarin, Polish, Old Church Slavonic, Classical Nahuatl, Italian, Swedish, Esperanto, Occitan, Swahili, Cantonese, Icelandic, Sanskrit, Old English, Catalan, Quechua, Dutch, Esperanto, Welsh, German, Koine Greek, Danish, Hawaiian, Cornish, Māori, Turkish, the Papuan languages of New Guinea, Hausa, Persian, Ancient Egyptian, Nepali, Norwegian and Afrikaans.
My digital library includes many more resources on these and dozens of others.
