Contacting us

You are very welcome to contact us by email. Choose between the safe but tedious method and the quick but ever so slightly risky method.

  • Safe but tedious: [fosfigures-of-speech.com]
    Select the text between the square brackets, copy, paste it into the address line of a new email, insert the '@' character between 'fos' and 'figures'. A sensible title line will help your message get through our spam filter.
  • Slightly risky but quick: Click Figures of Speech
    Here is a description of this risk.


No tracking. No advertisements. No cookies. Not very much content, either, so you're very safe on this site.

We are happy to take contributions (length 200-2,000 words, plain text, your own work). No payment, just lasting fame.

Content updates

The organization of the articles on this site is chronological, but, unlike many blogs, the articles do not sink down into oblivion after a while. Even elderly articles may be updated. A list of updated articles can be found in the menu under the heading Updated content.
