Tongue twisting

A big J-Blog welcome to Balashon, the "Hebrew language detective" (if you can't tell, that's a double pun in modern Hebrew).

Dave, an amateur linguist, covers a topic close to my heart: the origins of words and phrases in Hebrew and other Jewish tongues. Take a look at his great list of sidebar links! (He could use a blogroll, though. Hint, hint.)

I hope he joins the campaign to save Hebrew's vowels!

Thanks for the plug.

I'll consider the blogroll idea. But I would only want to put up ones that have some relation to the subject of Balashon (which I can see yours does.)

And after months the man comes out of the woodwork. Nice to see you again. :)

Then first things first: Start with an avid amateur linguist, Rishon Rishon.

My, it was dark there in the woodwork! And cramped!

Seriously, though, not blogging is liberating. All the things I've accomplished instead! I'm not promising to keep this up.
