Since getting a Mag. Phil. in Slavistics at Ruhr-Universität Bochum in 1993, I haven't worked in linguistics for a living, but I'm still following developments in historical and especially Indo-European linguistics with interest. "Etymolist" is the repository for the results of my amamteur activities in these fields. My interests in conlanging lead to the construction of the languages of Tarra, documented in "About Tarra". The remainder of my interests is covered in "Hans Kramladen".

That portrait also fitted Bashar Al-Assad 12 years ago.
