Or, to give the site its full name, Etymologie, Étymologie, Etymology / __ Welt, World, Le Monde / Sprachen der Länder. It’s a collection of language links, with descriptions in German or English, followed by a (very incomplete) list of countries and their languages. I’m too bushed to investigate it much, having spent the day traipsing around Manhattan and the Met (last weekend of the Byzantine exhibition) with PF and a mutual friend (and much of the evening rooting on the Mets against the Yankees), but it looks worthwhile.

Incidentally, I’d like to thank everyone who wished me a happy birthday. My wife gave me a much-needed new Panama (as well as cooking me a delicious curry dinner); one of these days I really have to get around to adding pictures to my Hats page. And next Saturday I’ll be heading to California for my dad’s birthday (his 89th — way to go, Dad!), so there will be a week’s hiatus, just like last year. You have been warned.
