i've officially become a dork. i spent the morning looking up resources on elvish linguistics. it's a fascinating language, because it was invented by one man, and yet still makes linguistic sense. it'd be way easier to study sindarin (common elvish tongue) or quenya (the "latin" of the elves) than, say, english, because they have absolutely no exceptions to rules, whereas for every rule in english there are twelve exceptions at the very least. i hope it won't be too confusing to study two different languages at once (japanese and quenya) because i found an online course in quenya which sounds really neat.
mikey, i think you've polluted my mind. i might want to become a sym sys major now.
yep, i'm a dork. (:
