The Blood of Souls. A Blog on language, translation and etymology

This is a blog on language, translation, etymology and other issues related to language and the use and misuse of words. The Blog title “The Blood of Souls”, alludes to a few quotes on language that I resonated with my own views about language:
 “Language is the blood of the soul into which thoughts run and out of which they grow”

                Oliver Wendell Holmes’

 “To have another language is to possess a second soul"


"Such simple words! But words are mighty things;
They cast us down, or lift us up to rest;
They charm and strengthen, till our angel sings
The last of all the life-songs, and the best."

                Sharah Doudney
