So the subject of today's blog post will be the same one about which I once asked a question which irritated a published (and fairly famous) author so much that she didn't come back to that con the following year. I don't know that it was specifically my question which did that, but I also don't know that it wasn't...
The topic, as befits a Trycanta Tuesday, is the language called Linmyra, which originates with the lyrror of that world. Its speakers may have another name for it, but if so, they're not telling. We've seen only a few words and phrases of Linmyra in Homecoming, but more will be forthcoming as other books set on Trycanta arrive.
Long-time Anne B. Walsh fans may also remember Linmyra as the language in which we used to communicate, at least part of the time, in chat. I had a great deal of fun translating things into it for people, and perhaps one of these years we can get back to that, or at least have a dictionary set up somewhere. Maybe even here.
However, for the rest of us, here is a brief Linmyra primer:
I would cover pronounciation here, but why bother when it's already elsewhere on the Interwebs? Have a link to the extras I wrote up for Homecoming, which I posted on my Fictionpress page a while back (and while you're there, why not scout around? You might find a few other things of interest).
Bit of a short post, but then, I'm not writing much of anything in this universe at the present time, and the universe in which I am writing is calling my name. So I must be off. Questions, as always, welcomed (if not always promptly answered... trying to get better about that) and I'll see you all on Thunder Thursday with yet another snippet!
