My colleague at The World Alex Gallafent is on assignment in the Brazilian rainforest right now. He’s blogging like a maniac, and he’s shot some video nasties of Amazonian creepy crawlies among other things. Alex has also indulged in some football/soccer trash talk. I emailed him earlier today to find out if Brazil’s news media have come up with anything as good as London’s The Sun on Brazilian star Ronaldo’s alleged encounter with three transvestite prostitutes.

Another language blog + podcast #1

Just what the world needs, I know…

This being a podcasty blog, the first post is to tell you listen to the world in words episode one. We have two reports on the words (or lack of words) in national anthems, and we end with an interview with travel writer Anna Brones on the pseudo-language of IKEA. Hear more about the idea of this podcast here.
