Ben Tavener in Rio de Janeiro

Rio de Janeiro, January 2011

I’m journalist and linguist Ben Tavener and newsling is blog about words in and out of the news, and language that finds its way into our daily lives.

Now I also write for The Rio Times.

I have a background in journalism – having worked at the BBC World Service for five years, and linguistics – which I studied at Cambridge University.

These are my findings and musings about life and language.

I’m living in Curitiba, Brazil as of July 2011, and so have started up a sister blog devoted to life and news there.
