This website was set up to accompany my newsletter on how English is evolving and how it is spoken around the world.

I like making lists. I like categorising the things I come across. It’s just how I tick.

This website is a side project, and I usually only come to it once a month, when I’m writing my newsletter. I’ll change the most embarrassing things (telling myself: what was I thinking last month?), make plans for the future, half-implement those plans, and then leave the website half-finished again. Which is probably how you found it right now.

But, you know, it is a work in progress (hah!).
