About Me
I studied philosophy, sociology and English literature at university: these were subjects in which words could have a literal and/or metaphorical meaning. English language was my favourite area of study during my schooldays. I continue to read widely and I am enchanted by new words that I come across and I am fascinated by how familiar words evolve and acquire new meanings and naunces. Words, to me, is a timeless treasure that humankind is priviledged to be bestowed with.
