By popular demand, here are the slides from my Ignite Portland 12 talk. I have to give extensive credit to my brother Connal for his help with ordering the slides, as well as making the graphs look incredibly slick. I also need to thank my mother for her endless supply of encouragement, and Robert for being my whimsical anchor.

Video of my talk is now accessible here, through the Ignite Portland Youtube Channel. I have also added it to an Encyclopedia Briannica playlist, where I will talk more about language topics just like this. Stay tuned.
What can I say? I’m proud of it.
EDIT: You can now get these slides, and more information on cutthroats, on my more respectable site, EncyclopediaBriannica.com.November 15, 2013
