I’m Michal Boleslav Měchura, a language technologist based in Dublin, Ireland. I work a lot with languages: I build lexical databases, design multilingual websites, program computational grammars and so on. So this blog is about language, about technology, but most importantly, about language technology.

My CV and portfolio is here. You can also visit my Irish-language blog, An Cainteoir Dóchais, where I can be found writing about stuff completely unrelated to any of the above.

  2. Hi Michal,
    I just published an article on my site, “100 Fantastic Blogs for Language Lovers” ( http://www.onlineaccrediteddegrees.org/100-fantastic-blogs-for-language-lovers/ ). First, I am happy to let you know that your site has been included in the article and if you have any questions about that article, how your site is described, etc. I wanted to let you know that you should feel free to email me. In addition, I thought I would bring it to your attention in case you think your readers might find it interesting and consequently would consider giving the article a mention on your site.
    In any case, thanks for your time!

  3. Hi!

    I read your 2009 post on linguistic relativity. You mention political correctness and manipulating sentences as contemporary examples of this in everyday life. I am writing an essay for school on the linguistic relativity, and was wondering if you had any other suggestions as to how this theory can be seen in the world today?

    Thanks, and keep up the good work!
