are flowing out like endless rain into a paper cup

Hello world! February 25, 2009

I love language, languages and getting mail.

Today, 15/06/2009, I start collecting words.

I come across a great deal of them daily, but there are many more languages than I will ever hear and I need your help searching for the most beautiful lexical items out there. Of course, beauty lies in the eyes of the beholder or rather ears of the listener, so don’t worry about what others consider beautiful, by sending me your favourite (in any language) you’ll make my day!

It would be great if you could send a postcard with the word on the front and maybe a translation and/or explanation why you like it on the back. If you feel creative, you can of course make a little artwork of the front (that would be great, in fact!), but it is important to me that the word is written  somewhere on the front.

Do you want to participate?

Fantastic! Send your favourite word to

Vossendijk 215/9
6534TV Nijmegen
The Netherlands

By sending a postcard you agree that I may post a scan of it on this blog.

Thank you so much!
