    I'm Mark A. Mandel, until November 2013 a research administrator at the Linguistic Data Consortium of the University of Pennsylvania, now retired. I sometimes style myself

    Dr. Whom, Consulting Linguist, Grammarian, Orthoëpist, and Philological Busybody

    I am still interested in languages, as well as folk music, filk music, science fiction, and other things. Including my cat.

    I wrote my dissertation on American Sign Language (Ph.D. in Linguistics, University of California at Berkeley), and I've studied lots more languages to a greater or lesser degree. Languages I've worked with in recent years* include Thai, Tagalog, Pashto, Tigrinya, Moroccan Berber, Yoruba, Bengali, Tamil, and Urdu. I also developed and maintained the LDC's Language Resource Wiki (now defunct).[1]

    I just created File:Wikipedia W favicon on white background.png from the official File:Wikipedia's W.svg so I could use it on my personal desktop, and uploaded it to Commons so anyone else can use it, too. Not under any copyright, but note potential trademark limitations.

    Pages significantly copyedited[edit]

    Note: I didn't stop "significant" copyediting in November 2018, I just quit logging it here. If you're really interested in my editing history (which I seriously doubt), you can look it up in my contribution list, although that won't distinguish copyedits from significant content edits.

    Latest on top. Also, lots more since my first edits, before I started listing them.
    Use  
    <small> ({{subst:#time:y.m.d}}) </small>
      to get (23.02.01)

    Going back to 1 February 2014, though I did plenty before then

    Doing[edit]

    (Again, latest on top, and since I started listing them. Once I'm done, I move 'em from here to the appropriate ↑ ↓ other section of this page. That is, if I finish them and if I remember to move them.)

    Other significant edits[edit]

    Oh, heck, for a year I've just been putting them under copyediting or not bothering to list them at all.

    Bug reports[edit]

    (Similarly...)

    • In MobileBeta front end, clicking in TOC does not go to a subsection whose parent section is unexpanded on the page. (15.04.05)
    • mobile beta: warning icon ⚠, truncated, is triplicated at the top of a page where it appears (15.02.13)
    • Mobile beta: "Speech balloons" icon on user talk page misgenerates target page name and reports "no conversations" (14.11.15)

    Silly pages[edit]

    Well, I think so. That's not a condemnation.
