Writings and Archived Blog Posts

For nearly 10 years, I ran a language blog called ‘Notes from a Linguistic Mystic’.

Although I shut the (long-dormant) site down in 2017, both in an effort to simplify my online life and because some of the early posts were very early in my learning, I’ve saved some of the best, most helpful, and most popular content below, organized by topic and then date. Hope you enjoy!
