I have a BA in Russian from a tiny college in the Midwest. Somehow that led to a career in business (not in or concerning the FSU).
I once took a crack at translating Sokolov’s School for Morons, but I’m not a literary translator (yet). I wrote a thesis on computational linguistics and know what a clitic is (it’s not as dirty as it sounds), but I’m definitely not a linguist. I’m an amateur in the worst sense of the word, but aspire to be one in the better sense.
I don’t have serious ambitions for this blog but hope you find some good words here!
