Nochtans heb ik een taalkundige achtergrond maar vind het ontzettend boeiend om me met taal bezig te houden. Ik heb in Delft Bouwkunde GEDAAN (niet gestudeerd) en Produktontwikkeling aan het HIAP in Antwerpen.

Ook in ontwerpprocessen staar je je af en toe dood en dan is het heerlijk om een frisse kijk te krijgen van een "leek".

Dat probeer ik (als ervaren leek) ook hier te doen en zo nu en dan lukt mij dat.

Taalkundig ben ik op de hoogte van de grondbeginselen van het Noors, Zweeds, Deens, Duits, Frans en in meerdere mate van het Engels (went to Grade School in Balto, MD).

Ik ken zo mijn eigen spellingregels en met Groene Boekjes heb ik niets te maken (gelukkig bestaan er ook proeflezers!).

Alhoewel mijn leraar Latijn mij "de poëet" noemde, schijn ik toch de meeste punten in de rubriek Techniek bij elkaar te hebben gesprokkeld...


Although I do not have a linguistic background I like to occupy myself with languages. I have DONE Architecture at Delft University of Technology (only at the Faculty of Architecture you do not study but you do DO) and Industrial Design at HIAP, Antwerp, Belgium.

In design processes alike sometimes you get blinded along the way, then to be given a fresh look from a layman can be very liberating.

That is what I (as an experienced layman) am trying to do here and ever so now and then I succeed.

Linguistically, I am acquainted with the basics of Norwegian, Swedish, Danish, German, French and a bit more than the basics with English (went to Grade School in Balto, MD).

I go by my own spelling rules and never made it to any spelling bee (hurray for proofreaders!).

Although my Latin teacher called me "the poet", I seem to have been awarded the most points in the Technology department...
