Language Links

Hello!

I’m Thomas, and I help out behind the scenes, keeping this blog up and running from the technical side of things. Part of that includes looking over the internet to find cool content that can be included in a weekly links page.

I’m also the recipient of a lot of Lee’s help with typos and grammar mistakes, hence the nom de plume, “Thomas Typo.”

This week’s links:

People make the most typos when…

From DMN News. What time of day, and via what platform, do people make the most mistakes online?

Grammar police strikes again…

From Story Pick. There’s an amusing twitter account called “Grammar Police” that corrects the grammar of celebrity and other notable Twitter users.

Prescription typo causes poisoning…

From That’s Life. This has a happy ending, but yeah, pretty scary.

Alexa adds support for other languages…

Amazon’s popular device adds some additional language support.

Yakuza 0 game localization…

Via Gematsu. I’m a big fan of the Yakuza series, and video games in general, especially Japanese games. Yakuza 0 is the latest and it’s pretty great!

Students create grammatically correct, random sentences…

Via PTLeader.
