    YouTube channel featuring brief but informative animated videos on the history of written and spoken languages, linguistics, grammar and writing systems.

Some of the content is strikingly original, such as an analysis of the grammar of an Islamic State communique in French about the attack on the Bataclan in Paris in November 2015 .
