I am Gerald Drißner (Drissner), an award-winning journalist and economist, who was born in 1977 and grew up in a mountain area in the Austrian Alps where modern skiing was invented. But that is not the story here.

I am an Arabic addict. I write about fascinating and interesting stuff that is related to ArabicMy special guests are etymology, Egyptian Arabic, roots, and Islam. 

I have lived in the Middle East and North Africa for more than a decade, where I have intensively studied Arabic.
