Phonaesthetics is the study of the inherent pleasantness (euphony) or unpleasantness (cacophony) of the sound of certain words, phrases, and sentences.
The reason I called my blog the ‘Journal of Everyday Phonoaesthetics’ was because it seemed to capture what all writers do. We search for words, phrases and sentences from our everyday lives and then feed them into our writing. Or at least, I do.
JOEPHA is a space for me to write both fiction and non-fiction on subjects of my own choosing. I’ve recently completed a short story collection called ‘Umlaut and Other Experiments’ which is in the final editing stages, and have two novels that I’m in the process of writing (‘Constantinople’ is my current project, and ‘Ghost Cities’ is something I’ve been working on for a long time).
