About This Blog
This blog is principally aimed at the discussion of Language, Fiction, and all the theories, tropes and tribulations around those topics. In terms of Language I will mostly be discussing the English Language and Linguistics from schools of thought that typically observe that language above others. In terms of Fiction, I don’t consider anything off the table or not worthy of scrutiny: be it film, computer gaming narratives, comic books or even music. The principle aim is to look at these genres in more detail and discuss the issues around them.
Whilst this blog will mostly aim to be balanced and logical, there’s still a fair possibility of rants, customer advocacy or political opinion pieces. I will be trying to limit them (to concentrate on the remit), but I may post a few up if they’re relevant to the blog. I generally try to avoid politics, but it will inevitably come up from time to time. I’m very left-leaning, so some people may regard some of my views as “SJW”. In that sense, if you don’t like that sort of thing, this blog isn’t for you. I wont be particularly sensitive about issues, but I’m willing to listen to and be understanding of those who are. I like to analyse and think about things, and I think that’s worthwhile. My aim is usually curiosity. I can always be contacted via the features on this blog regarding feedback.
I will probably discuss quite high-brow aspects of Linguistics (e.g. Semiotics, Pragmatics, Semantics etc) at some points. I will try my best to define any terms I use that are likely to be unfamiliar to the average reader. However, if I miss any, please look the meanings up, and I encourage readers to read into these ideas more. They’re worth it.
Also yeah, if you were here to read about the Weather, I apologise for any inconvenience caused!
