About Simon

Simon HamiltonSimon studied zoology and animal behavior at Nottingham, UK, loves languages, tomorrow's technology and lifelong learning, is forever amazed by the perfection of dragonflies, but isn't too good at dancing barefoot in the park. For those who like to see who they're dealing with, here I am.

"Moderately obsessed" with words and the origins of language, Simon has a collection of some 450+ dictionaries, including two of his own:
• Portuguese-English-French: Vocabulário Popular de Porto Velho, a glossary of words used in the Amazonian Wild West of Brazil
• Estonian-English: A Rambling Dictionary of Tallinn Street Names, a list of every street name in Tallinn, Estonia, with explanations, etymology, anecdotes and occasional bits of history

Simon is also the author of Français hors de France ! (French out of France!), a book in French on the French language, available from most bookstores.
