About me

Gender MALE
Location Winnipeg, Manitoba, Canada
Introduction Growing up on gyros, roti and chow mein, I learned to appreciate the beauty of world cultures at an early age. I spend any spare time I have avidly studying comparative linguistics.
My blog 'Paleoglot' delves into the reconstruction of Proto-Indo-European and Proto-Aegean (aka Proto-Tyrrhenian; ancestor of Etruscan, Lemnian, Rhaetic, Eteo-Cypriot, Eteo-Cretan and Minoan). Sometimes though I'll throw in a bone about whatever ancient language, culture or civilization inspires me that day.
(WARNING: I can be über-pedantic but I mean well, I really do.)
Interests historical linguistics, computer programming, quantum mechanics
