Things you hear on the radio

Driving back from Oxford this afternoon after a very pleasant day plotting this n' that with jemck, I found myself listening to Word of Mouth with Michael Rosen. Today's topic was synthetic languages: not simply Esperanto, but a piece on (and in) Klingon, and interview with former Cambridge fan Colin Fine about Lojban, and a fascinating interview with sf writer Suzette Haden Elgin on Laadan. Very interesting, and I recommend it. It's here for the next 7 days: http://www.bbc.co.uk/programmes/b006qtnz

Skirt of the day: burgundy patchwork.
