Lost in Translation + 2 calls: Senses, Crossings
Language / Place Blog Carnival #13: "Lost in Translation"
Edition #13 of the language place blog carnival is live! This edition is all about language and how humorous or just plain hard it is to understand when it's foreign. "Lost in Translation" is our first multiple-view edition! Big thanks to host + Lebenskünstler Christopher Allen, who makes it possible to get lost in a fancy mosaic, in classic style, in snaphots... Here's the link: Edition #13: Lost in Translation
