Here's my (very abbreviated, in advance of sunset... oh, let's begin with Tuesday's sunrise! here in pdx....) G+ stream (I think!)
I’m interested in #wildflowers, #artanddesign, #illustrations, #linguistics...... Will think of more later. I'm not a hashtag girl.:(
But thanks for taking me in, in advance.... & Special thanks to the prescient person who created this space before Black Monday :)
A Language To Unite #Humankind
People are apt to make fun of other people’s habit of talking about the weather to their neighbors in the elevator. They shouldn’t make fun. By invoking the one thing that we know we have in common with others, we throw a rope across the divide, asserting that, whatever our differences, we do share something: when it rains on one of us, it’s going to rain on the other one, too. Schor quotes the Spanish Esperantist Jorge Camacho: “Esperanto continues to give me something . . . which I don’t find anywhere else, an irrational sense of directly belonging to the world.”

From what I understand it's about inventing the story of a small, isolated community that has their own language/dialect, invent words for that language and see the community change over time, the language evolve, and, finally, the language die. Of course, this can be placed in any setting (a jungle, another planet, ...).
The linguist in me is super-excited. I think I'll buy it, even if I may never get the chance to play. I'm sure reading the book is going to be worth the price!
