Language Links

こんにちは! Or rather, konnichiwa or hello (yes, I am continuing to study Japanese, with Lee’s help!). Thomas here with this weekend’s language links:

Language:

Whale mimics human speech.

From the Smithsonian. My mother sent this in (thanks!) and says this is a sad story, so I avoided reading it 🙂 But I bet it is interesting!

Do the linguistic ideas in the film Arrival have any merit?

From the Smithsonian.

Grammar:

National Grammar Day.

From the American Enterprise Institute. Did you know March 4th was National Grammar Day? I didn’t, but this post from AEI outlines a treasure trove of awesome grammar-related resources!

Typo Terror:

Typo just about kills the internet for a day.

From Business Insider. Whenever something breaks on Amazon, it feels like my life is over. How spoiled we are! 🙂 😉

Blogs:

Getting beyond intermediate Spanish.

From Actual Fluency. Kris talks to Olly Richards from Fluent Spanish Academy.

Five fun facts about Brazil’s Carnival.

From Busuu.
