Anansi the spider wants to capture all the knowledge in the world and keep it in a pumpkin for himself: recipes, building instructions, formulae, even vocabulary and rules of grammar. Wilhelm von Humboldt wanted to collect vocabulary and grammar rules too. But he wanted to share them with as many people as possible. He was fascinated by languages, and learned more than 30 himself.
