Can you guess what my goal for today is?

I haven’t posted anything here for nearly a week (sorry!) because things have been pretty hectic on the translation front. As I’m sure my fellow freelancers would agree, when there is a lot of work to be done, other little jobs can slip off your to-do list.

However, there is good news! I was delighted to be invited to write an article for one of the professional associations that I belong to (stay tuned for news!), and I have been writing a paragraph here and there when I have been able to find a bit of time, but the deadline is now fast approaching. So today’s the day. I’m buckling down and getting on with it.

In the meantime, I have found a few posts to aid and inspire your own writing:

Procrastination: Dealing with the thief of time by Sarah Arrow on Sark eMedia
* 6 Proven Tips for Getting into the “Write” Mood at The Renegade Writer

If however, if you’re more in the mood for reading, how about working through the reading lists (here and here) that I put together earlier this year. In addition, fellow translator and friend Chiara Vecchi has recently written a review of Judy and Dagmar Jenner’s book The Entrepreneurial Linguist, which is well worth checking out.

I’ll be back soon, when I’ve finished my article. Wish me luck!

Word of the Week #1

It’s Friday! The end of the week (hopefully) signals a slowing of pace as we head towards a few days of rest, or at least non-translation activities.watch movie Monster High: Electrified 2017 now

In a move away from more serious topics, I am planning to make this a series of posts, as I have many, many favourite words in several languages, not just the ones I work with. This week, I have chosen to dip into properties and colour:

Word of the Week - Iridescent Bubbleiridescent – /ˌɪrɪˈdɛs(ə)nt/ (on a side note, I love the phonetic representations in dictionaries. I find myself saying the word out loud, and I think it helps the word stick in my mind).

According to the OED, this beautiful word means “showing luminous colours that seem to change when seen from different angles”.

I don’t think this rigid definition does justice to the fascinating, fluid and free image that the word conjures up, as is arguably the case for a huge number of words, but it is still a candidate for my top 10 favourite words.

 

Do any of my fellow linguists and word enthusiasts have a favourite? Please share it with me in the comments!

Oh and Happy Friday, everyone!
