Hi everybody, I'm St. Ridley Santos. You guys over here know me from some of my posts, but today I'm here to answer any questions you might have relating to the fields of English and Translation.

A bit of background and credentialing - I'm entering my third year in my PhD program in medieval literature, and I am also starting an MFA in literary translation (primary languages Spanish and Old English). If you remember my Fun with Etymology posts, or you saw my post from earlier today addressed to English majors, you've probably got a pretty good handle on some of the things I find fun and exciting about this field.

So, please feel free to ask me anything you want. I'm scheduling this post partly so I don't have two back to back on the ODeck and partly with the hope that I'll be home by the time it goes up, but I may be a little late - I'm stepping out to help one of the incoming translation people move some furniture to her new place.
