Lenny Fortunato

Alina “Lenny” Fortunato is a sophomore at UNCC pursing an English major with a minor in Linguistics. Between writing essays, reading for class, and trying to stay afloat in a sea of work, she likes to watch her favorite shows (ABC's Thank God It's Thursday, anyone?), keep her Tumblr blog updated, sew, and teach herself Korean. She is always hooked up to Spotify, probably talks way too much, and has a hard time keeping track of all her hobbies. Lenny does not know what career she wants to pursue but is hopeful that her interests in language and Korean culture will take her on many adventures.

Logolepsy – 3 & 4

My weekend consisted of two very dull days. They were the kinds of days that beg staying indoors, cuddled up under a favorite blanket watching Netflix. They were also the kinds of days that, because of said begging, also caused procrastination. I’ll admit, I’m weak to my bed and my blanket and my Netflix account, […]

Logolepsy – 1 & 2

I’m in love with language. I like talking, hearing people talk, hearing other languages, learning other languages. I like grammar and syntax and phonetics and phonology and morphology and etymology and semantics and pragmatics, the whole shebang. Call me a nerd – I’ll gladly take it as a compliment.
