This is the first time I've been the first poster in a DU Group!

As many of you know, I'm a Japanese-English translator, but you may not know that I have a Ph.D. in linguistics. However, I paid as little attention as possible to theoretical linguistics and concentrated on historical, so don't ask me about any developments in theoretical linguistics after 1975, which is when I took my general exams.

As an undergraduate, I majored in German and minored in French, with little forays into Latin and Russian. I also studied Spanish in high school, Chinese in graduate school, and made stabs at Norwegian, Latvian, and Hebrew, although I never got very far in any of them.

How about yourselves?
