About The Author – Asya Pereltsvaig

From early on, I’ve been fascinated with languages, their diversity and history. Today I teach linguistics to as wide an audience as possible, including blogging about the world’s languages here on this site. The world’s languages is also the topic of my forthcoming textbook from Cambridge University Press.

I teach classes at Stanford’s Department of Linguistics and the Continuing Studies Program, as well as at several Osher Lifelong Learning Institutes around the Bay Area.
