Linguistish: Phonation Phonahtion

So because I am a Terrible, Horrible, No Good, Very Bad person, this is my first Linguistish post in donkeys years, and for that I profusely apologise. This is actually a revision thing for me, as I have a phonetics exam coming up and need to understand how phonation works, so I thought I’d kill two birds with one stone and everything.

I also have now watched all of Shadowhunters, so I have some reviews of that to do. Hurrah!

A Pledge, I Pledge

So, the moral of the story is: no one should ever let me run a blog. Who thought that was a good idea?

I wouldn’t be surprised if tumbleweeds start drifting through the pages of charlottewebs, to be honest.

But fear not!

2016 is a new year and a new leaf of code in the HTML book of blogging. And I shall do better. Henceforth, I shall do better.

That was a pledge, in case you missed it.

As well as returning to my Linguistish posts, I’ll be undertaking this reading challenge and scribbling down my thoughts on each book. I didn’t read that much in 2015 (my Goodreads Book Challenge slowly decreased from an ambitious 52 down to a lacklustreĀ ‘at least get into double figures, Charlotte?’) and want to work on that.

So there should be more coins in my blog’s coffers come this time next year.

(Resolution for 2017: stop using so many terrible metaphors.)
