Once again, I can be relied upon to bring -- if nothing else -- the latest language-related story
from the BBC Today programme: this time about Dothraki, the constructed language featured in Game of


The story includes an odd little swipe at "Welsh, Irish Gaelic and Scots Gaelic combined". A more
cynical person than me might suspect a gripe at the BBC having to take over most of the funding of
the Welsh-language TV channel S4C recently (http://goo.gl/LDX2G)!
