Omniglot in the Media

Every so often Omniglot is mention in the media, and I am interviewed for articles and podcasts. I have also written articles for a few other websites. This page contains links to those media appearances, and articles I've written.

Details of presentations I've given at language-related events such as the Polyglot Gathering and Polyglot Conference, with videos and slides.
