Hi! I'm Alex, a native speaker of English and for a long time not very interested in learning any others; I found languages difficult and boring at school. But recently for academic purposes I've started learning Akkadian (specifically, Old Babylonian) and I'm having so, so much fun. I love the concept of radicals - it's just pattern recognition! I can do that! - and noun-endings and forming possessive pronouns with body parts; and I am beginning to translate from the cuneiform, which I dreamed of doing for a while. Gilgameš and Inanna and ridiculous amazing omen-texts, here I come.
I will probably need to learn Ancient Greek at some point. I really want to learn Thai, at least spoken.
