Email from Kerri:
Hello. Thanks for doing the podcast. For some reason, I just comprehend things better aurally than read, so it’s been very useful to me! I’m not a linguist, I’m a writer who’s just trying to make something that doesn’t make linguists grind their teeth. I created a language to go with a culture I created for a story, way back when I was 12-13, long before I’d ever heard of conlanging. It was awful and the story was pure cheese with horrible gobs of angst and a cast of mary sues, but hey, I was 12. I threw most of it out a long time ago, but your podcast encouraged me to give it (well, not that exactly) another try. Minus the angst, “characters”, and almost everything else. Doing it right, and with some actual knowledge. Thanks for that.
How about a podcast on pidgins? I’ve been studying Latin and have a yen to settle the Ninth Legion somewhere unlikely.
