Rationale for this Project


Summary of Progress during October - December 2021
  1. I spent 71 hours in 21Q4 on this Project, or related work (71 hours YTD, where for "YTD" - Year to Date - I mean the (academic) year that commenced in October 2021). That's 78.3% of the planned effort (78.3% YTD). Overall, 10.3% of my Project effort in the Quarter was directed towards this project (making 10.3% YTD) - as against 10.9% planned (10.9% YTD).
  2. I might have comfortably met my time-allocation for the quarter but, as noted in my Summary Report, I was unwell for most of December, and was somewhat lacking in energy, so only achieved 78%.
  3. Further details follow:-
    Languages (Total Hours = 71)
    1. Languages - Admin
    2. Languages - All (Total Hours = 1)
    3. Languages - Arabic (Total Hours = 4.25)
    4. Languages - Armenian (Total Hours = 3.25)
    5. Languages - Chinese
    6. Languages - Danish
    7. Languages - Dutch
    8. Languages - Egyptian
    9. Languages - French
    10. Languages - German
    11. Languages - Greek (Modern)
    12. Languages - Hebrew (Modern)
    13. Languages - Hindi (Total Hours = 2)
    14. Languages - Italian
    15. Languages - Japanese (Total Hours = 5.75)
    16. Languages - Korean
    17. Languages - Persian (Total Hours = 1.5)
    18. Languages - Portuguese
    19. Languages - Russian
    20. Languages - Spanish
    21. Languages - Swahili
    22. Languages - Swedish
    23. Languages - Syriac
    24. Languages - Thai
    25. Languages - Turkish
    26. Languages - Urdu (Total Hours = 2.75)
  4. As can be seen, I spent quite a lot of time on this project over the last Quarter. Most is otherwise “fallow” time when walking the dog, but progress has required some time in front of grammars.
  5. The main activity of the quarter revolved around Ling Language Learning, of which I’ve subscribed to the premium version. I’ve been cycling through 22 languages and recording my thoughts as Brief Thoughts on Language & Languages2.
  6. I also continued with Coptic, Egyptian and Syriac using the works noted above.
  7. I’m reading through the NT, OT and LXX in the original Greek and Hebrew. This is quite a time-commitment, but time is booked to my Philosophy of Religion3 Project.
  8. I’ve also looked into Arabic for the Qur’an.
  9. Otherwise, I’ve spent some time revising the various scripts I don’t have a mastery of.
  10. Progress (if any) in the current quarter can be obtained from the relevant section of my Summary Task List4, and YTD in the current & future “automatic” editions of this report.
