Every weekend, in clubs and pubs across the country, young men and women drink themselves stupid. Meanwhile, James Winters sits at home writing a blog that no-one reads.
But who is James Winters?
James Winters is currently a student at the University of Edinburgh, studying for an MSc in the Evolution of Language and Cognition. He’s originally from Cardiff, Wales and as such is an obligatory rugby fanatic. James is also characteristic of most Welsh people in another way: he does not actually speak Welsh. He does, however, have a few choice words: sbwriel, cyfrifiadur and Llanfairpwllgwyngyllgogerychwyrndrobwllllantysiliogogogoch. One day he plans on expanding this repertoire of words and phrases into some semblance of the entire language. Until then, his immediate goals are largely focused around finishing his degree. For this reason, he decided to start this blog, which, if you come back to it in the future, will contain a vast corpus of material related to language, its evolution and anything else in-between. At the time of writing, his posts include: website age ratings, atheism, the economy, and Yellowstone’s supervolcano. James is also very inconsistent.
My going out face.
My slightly less attractive, blogging face.
And no, I never smile whilst writing this blog.
