All of this talk about Tolkien and seeing Penguin’s guide to writing a fictional language has made me want to invent a language of my own. I won’t do it because of time, and a lack linguistic knowledge, and because my current work in progress really, really isn’t that kind of book.
But I keep thinking about it anyway.
This wouldn’t be the first time I tried to create a language. When I was around 10, I attempted to make one. Somewhere in a box of old papers, there are sheets that contain strange scripts that I painstakingly sketched out. As I recall, they are all fairly ridiculous; 10 year old me didn’t understand language construction.
Despite contemplating language construction, my writing this week all occurred in English. Which is probably for the best all things considered.
