Articles can be long or short, serious or lighthearted, fact or fiction, and in any language - as long as they have something to do with language. If you write in a language I can't read, please provide a translation or summary in English. Articles should not be used primarily as a means of promoting a product or service.

You can send your articles as plain text, Word or PDF. Feel free to include illustrations, photos, audio, video, animation, etc. but try to keep file sizes as small as possible.

Please provide a brief paragraph about youself, including details like where you come from, what you do for a living, etc. You can also include your contact details. This may generate some enquiries and maybe even some business for you - this site is visited by over a million people each month. Please do not send me your CV.
