Hello, and I suppose welcome to my Userpage on Wikipedia.
I'm a guy from Norway with a Swiss father and Dutch mother. I studied Mathematics at University College London. I'm a science, and math buff obviously, with a huge passion for Photography and Art. I have Aspergers Syndrome but am proud to be different. I also enjoy Riding, and Fencing among many other things, nothing more to say, except read the user boxes to learn more hehe.
I have worked on varying translation projects in the past in a wide variety of languages and am always available to offer translation services for wikipedia if this is desired.
I am also available for proofreading for most european languages, and a variety of languages outside of the indo-european language family.
My speciality in the field of linguistics at post-graduate level was "native american & constructed languages", and as such speak at a near native level Cherokee, Navajo, Yucatec & Classical Maya, Classical & Modern Nahuatl, Kalaallisut & Ojibwe (advanced knowledge of Chippewa) and have good knowledge of Choctaw, Siksika, Inuktitut, Hopi & Cree with a passing knowledge of some other languages and/or dialects.
In constructed languages I have advanced knowledge of Toki Pona & Klingon with some knowledge of Esperanto, Ido, & Interlingua. My research has centred around the natural acquisition of constructed languages.
My beautiful OjibweEdit
Ojibwe, or as known in the language itself, "Anishinaabemowin", is an Algonquian language, and one of the most prominent languages of native North America. This language family of Algonguian languages, includes Cree, Delaware, Cheyenne & Blackfoot or Siksika among many others, and is one of the most prominent of all native american language families. These languages each decend from the postulated Proto-Algonquian around 2500 to 3000 years ago, which was situated around Lake Ontario, and reached as far south as Niagara Falls.

"אז מה הם החיים האלה? הכל רק דמיון-שווא, אשליה, צל חולף, בדיה אשר אין לה יסוד. כל הישג אינו אלא חלום, כי כל החיים הם חלום. והחלומות? הם רק חלומות."
"It would be possible to describe everything scientifically, but it would make no sense; it would be without meaning, as if you described a Beethoven symphony as a variation of wave pressure."

"If we knew what it was we were doing, it would not be called research, would it?"
"Every inch of me will perish. Every inch but one. An inch... It is small, and fragile, and it is the only thing in the world worth having. We must never lose it or give it away. We must never let them take it from us. I hope that, whoever you are, you escape this place. I hope that the world turns and things get better. But I hope most of all that you understand that even though I will never meet you, laugh with you, cry with you, or kiss you, I love you. With all my heart, I love you."
