I am too wired to sleep so I present to you a cool website I just found

I called my mom to chat briefly and she mentioned trying to find a particular French slang word online (she is way off into linguistics and is currently obsessed with French). I googled around and found this site:

http://www.languagerealm.com/

They have a huge slang dictionary for English, Spanish, French, Japanese, etc – as well as idioms and other things. Good to have if you are an OT and perhaps wonder what some slang means! But it also has tons of interesting linguistic articles, and it ALSO, MOST IMPORTANTLY, has a GREAT section on Harry Potter and Linguistics, discussing how all the popular made-up words in Harry Potter were translated into different languages, in terms of keeping true to the meanings/puns behind all the words. So I guess that last part has nothing to do with OT but it's almost midnight and I am incredibly sleep deprived and tired but it's hard to sleep after being on the go for so long so I've been playing online to try and calm down and so I had to share this fascinating site. The End.

NOW I REALLY REALLY REALLY REALLY AND TRULY AM TURNING OFF MY COMPUTER AND LYING DOWN.
