Well I've not blogged for a long time. Unfortunately my mother was diagnosed with cancer last year and didn't chose the easiest way of fighting it (lots of flights to get treatment rather than treatment near home). Unfortunately, despite the cancer probably being in control, the chemotherapy was too potent for her body and it caused her a horrible death. Not something I'd wish on anyone.
Anyway, I'm in the process of doing a blog on minority languages as there's much happening in that space, at least to document the onward spread of the English language and regionally dominant languages.
