I'm Aleksei, a linguistics student from Holland, Russian by birth; I'm minoring in classical singing. I live in the old Dutch town of Delft, whereas I study in Leiden and in The Hague (Den Haag). I'm a native bilingual in Dutch and Russian (although neither language is "100%", but I guess my Dutch is something like 90% and my Russian about 75-80%). English is fine too for me, although I'm sort of fluent, but far from native in it. So... I hope to post things about interesting language phenomena, or beautiful and/or interesting music, or just some strange ideas of mine.
