Reflective Blog by Avraham Roos.
Each post zooms in on the etymology of a vocabulary term which best expresses my feelings or current projects.
Is this like FlipSnack? I want to create a shelf for my students' book reports. Is there an easier way than Flipsnack? It seems like this site is only for existing books.
No this is not like FlipSnack. This is indeed only for existing books
I see you are a fan of Godel Escher Bach. Hofstadter is my favorite author. As a language teacher, I hope you have read his "Le Ton Beau du Marot: In Praise of the music of Language". If not, I would be happy to lend it to you. It is, to me, much more meaningful and insightful than Godel etc., and touches very deeply on issues of language and translation.He also has two wonderful essays on gender neutral language in his book "Metamagical Themas".
No I did not read Le Ton Beau du Marot. I'd love to read it. I did read Metamagical Themas.
