Can’t help but notice how many people here have studied languages and or linguistics or are currently studying them!
I wonder if there is a correlation between interest in names and general interest in language.
I studied Russian, Czech and Polish and a smattering of Slavic linguistics (mostly historical and a bit of phonology) and speak to varying degrees of fluency [name_f]English[/name_f], Russian, [name_m]German[/name_m], Spanish, [name_u]French[/name_u], Welsh and Esperanto.
Other linguist and polyglot berries, what are your linguistic interests/any other languages you speak?!
