Next book

In my next book – working title: Babel – the world will be my linguistic oyster. I will cover fewer languages than in Lingo, picking them apart in more detail and bringing to light numerous apparently bizarre elements. Often, however, it turns out that either they make a lot of sense or English does likewise – though rarely both.

By the way, if you read Dutch, you may enjoy my latest book, Vakantie in eigen taal, published in March 2016.
