A Return To The Annals meta

After a long absence I'm returning to blogging. With the first redesign since the blog launched 5 1/2 years ago, the blog is being repurposed with a more academic purpose. I'll still write about the language learning books and news relating to the language, but I'll also include more technical posts that may not have broad appeal.

There have been a number of emails that we've received at Phonemica asking if we're going to still blog at Sinoglot. Truth is, we're all just too busy. We talk a couple times a week about stuff that would make for interesting posts, but then nothing comes of it because we're busy with school, with work, with travel, with events or other things to maintain Phonemica.

So, no, probably Sinoglot won't get updates in the near future. But this blog will. Hopefully that will be satisfactory to at least some of the old regular Sinoglot readers.

    Nong Ve Qieq Ku Leq Va meta

    This isn't actually a post from 2009. I'm writing this in mid-2014. The 2009 date is the date of the first post on the blog that became this blog. I'm retaining some of the older posts, though not all. This is simply a way to remember when I first got started on the blog that eventually became what you're reading today.

    Needless to day, 5 years ago I didn't know what I know now, and much of what I originally wrote was speculation (but I was at least honest about admitting as much) and doesn't really apply. I've removed posts on things about which I now know more about, since there's not a lot of value in keeping misinformation up just for the sake of nostalgia.

      About

      A semi-academic linguistics blog about Sinotibetan, previously focused primarily on Wú, a Sinitic language spoken in the Yangtze Delta region. Topics now include historical linguistics, documentation, language rights, sociolinguistics and learning materials, as well as acting as the dev blog for Phonemica from time to time.

      I'm a linguist based in Asia, working on documentation and historical development of Sinotibetan. In addition to academic research, I'm heavily involved in Phonemica, an organisation that promotes crowd-sourced preservation of local languages.

      I'm currently in the field, so getting in touch isn't easy. However you can try to email me at the following address and I'll respond as soon as I'm able:
