(Profile picture by Arthur)
Hello! My name is Eowyn Cwper /ˈeɪ̯.ə.wɪn ˈkuːpə(ɹ)/ (they/them). Born in 1998, I grew up (and I still live) in the Loire mountains where I was fully home educated. This allowed me to find out about my interests fairly quickly and learn efficiently from my passions.
In 2014, I started to teach myself linguistics. I also started a blog which still takes up a lot of my time. Initially intended for film analysis, it evolved to accommodate my ever-multiplying passions. Since 2018, it is mainly a popular science blog about linguistics where I try to follow in the footsteps of more illustrious knowledge bearers.
Flitting from one discipline to another, rummaging miscellaneously – sometimes briefly but with passion always –, I love to pass on knowledge or stories!
Self-teaching has made me experiment, at different levels, with disciplines as diverse as writing (creative, analytical, scientific, pedagogical and encyclopaedic), linguistics (in many aspects), languages (I learn and create some), translation, cartography and mapmaking, comic making, popular science, editing and administrating wikis, managing and animating online communities, as well as music (mostly composition), beatboxing, and some meteorology. Finally, I am interested in human relationships, identity, sociology, psychology and Buddhism.
As you can see, I do a bit of everything: my activities and interests mix differently as my moods change, and I could hardly see it any other way! Anyhow, it’s always a great pleasure for me to talk about these topics and questions are welcome. 🙂
