I’m a linguist working in Canada. I use this blog to write about linguistics and language analysis, focusing on problems with traditional (prescriptive) grammar. I also have a series on the International Phonetic Alphabet. My preference is to write long-form posts that consider an issue in detail. Currently, my schedule allows me to update this blog about once per month. I still regularly update my Twitter @LinguaDiem, where I post about as many languages as I can (now past 600!).

I’ve been asked a few times now about the “funny G” in the blog name. It’s a symbol from the International Phonetic Alphabet, and it represents a voiced uvular implosive. There’s no particular reason that I use this symbol, except that I wanted an IPA symbol and I happened to have an image on hand for this one. I’ve grown to like it.
