If you put my name or handle on any list of fediverse users without my consent and i find it out, i will block you.

No matter if you're a fellow linguist or not. If you don't ask my consent to do that, i will block you.

writing ~ 

i just saw a recent short comment on one of my 10 years old short story and, uh, they had read it as a homophobic story and deducted that it was written by a homophobe.

which is... well, okay, i didn't quite have the finesse i have today (hah!) when i wrote that, and i wouldn't write quite a similar story today, but suuuuure if you know nothing about the artist, you may end up making some wild assumptions.

I don't know how widely circulated this has been but uh apparently Sudowrites has been scraping AO3 for its writing AI 😬 https://www.reddit.com/r/AO3/comments/z9apih/sudowrites_scraping_and_mining_ao3_for_its/

Polyglot City

Polyglot City is the right instance for you if you're interested in linguistics, languages, language learning, or translation, or if you're multilingual or polyglot. All languages are allowed to flourish on our timelines, and multilingual puns are welcome. And of course you're also free to talk about other things besides language.
