The concept of > Language > Place is “To create a collaborate cyber journey that features international perspectives on language and place, in different formats, and with different languages included …. The main language is english, the carnival consists of a main page that links to all participating blogs.” The fifth edition of the blog carnival is now online, hosted by Parmanu, who created a special format for this edition: a “Museum of Language & Place“:
A teacher finds how much he can learn about himself through lessons to a second-language English student.
A newcomer realizes that a place is not what it first seems to be.
A traveler learns that a city can break a friendship.
A group of marines discover a working telephone in the middle of a Central American jungle.
An outsider experiences the strangeness of discovering others like himself in a foreign land.
These are some of the stories hidden in the Museum of Language & Place…. The Museum of Language & Place, like other museums, has rooms and exhibits. Unlike other museums, however, this one lets you move directly from one room to any other. Each room has one exhibit; there are 18 exhibits and 21 rooms. (I’ll let you discover where the remaining rooms lead to.)
A clever idea, and I’m going to try to remember to explore the other editions.
