Example: While Jennifer’s ramblings seem fatuous to most, her best friend seemed to understand her clearly.
So, I got the idea to start doing this from this blog. I think it’s a great idea to post your goals or have something to keep you accountable, so, that’s exactly what I’m going to do!
Origin: Old French, Latin
This word comes from the Middle French abatre which is derived from the Latin battuo, battuere - to beat.
Example: The kids played inside as they waited for the storm to abate.
So, it’s been a while since I’ve posted one of these. It’s been a while since I have been posting regularly, period. Now that I have some gainful employment and have stopped moving around for the time being, I have some time to post regularly again and, hopefully, make this blog even better than ever! So, in celebration of the resuming of normal posts again, here’s another shoutout to you awesome people that follow this blog and some other amazing blogs that you should check out!
Linguastic - A blog of a fellow language-learner. I am simply amazed by the concrete goals she’s set for herself, the cool content, and other interest things that may interest you as well. I think all language learners should do something like what she’s doing - make weekly goals and keep practicing! I will actually be taking some tips away from her blog and reworking mine a bit, accordingly!
tipsforlanguagelearning - Another great language blog with a wealth of tips and more in many languages - it’s not language-specific.
arabicproblems - You don’t need to know Arabic to relate; we’ve all been there. Here’s something to cheer you up when your language learning seems a bit tough.
latin-student-problems - Just like the about is Arabic-specific, this one’s all about the Latin, baby.
oupacademic - A neat blog put together by the Oxford University Press. It’s not 100% languages or linguistics, but for those of you that love to learn about languages and the world, this is a must follow (If you haven’t already).
