Stephen Fry on Babel
Those of you who follow us on Twitter may have noticed a recent tweet about Babel from none other than Stephen Fry. Stephen very kindly endorsed the magazine, suggesting that language lovers ought to be "blown away" by it!
We're very grateful to Stephen for his kind words. To have such a well-known and respected lover of language recommend the magazine suggests that Babel is hitting the mark, and we hope that our new subscribers, including Stephen, will throughly enjoy the magazine throughout 2014 and beyond.
We also have a question for our etymologically-minded readers, posed by Stephen Fry himself:
What is the origin of the term 'nap', as used in betting?
