Hello and welcome to LinguaCelta! This is my website all about linguistics, with some detours into markup and cryptic crosswords on the side.

I'm Bethan Tovey-Walsh, and you can find out more about me here.

If you're interested in my blog, take a look here. My latest post is about my loanword-inspired fabric art project, ‘Bratwaith’, and the surprising use of “navy blue” as an oath in Welsh.

Information about my academic papers, and slides from talks about linguistics and/or markup technologies, can be found here.

If you came for the cryptic crosswords, there are a couple here. I'll be adding more as and when time allows.

If you don't already follow me on Twitter, you can do that here.
