Just one day before the end of the year. Here are some tabs I've had open for a few days now:
-- Latin Making a Comeback - this one is thanks to Steve Rice from auxlang. It mentions the most recent audio recording of the Latin New Testament that I've written about so much here.
-- English vowel shift - listen to the same (short) passage read in four varieties of English from the Middle Ages to the 18th century.
-- An article here in German with the title "Der s-Plural ist originär Deutsch" (The plural in s is originally German) with plenty of discussion below.
-- Another article in Portuguese with numbers on trade between China and Portuguese-speaking nations.
