On building a language from scratch: Part 2

I’m back with another iteration of this language series, and this time, I’ll be giving you a bit more information on the Verisi language. What will we be looking at? The alphabet. As you’ve already been familiarized with the language’s vowels and consonants, it should be a simple reference to the picture below, which is the first letter of the Veri alphabet:

 

VerisiAweVerisiEh

 

The first letter we have on the Verisi alphabet is Awe, written as seen above. The second letter is Eh, written exactly the same way as Awe, but with a strong press of the brush above it. As you will begin to notice with the coming revelations is that each letter has two iterations. One without a dot, as seen with Awe above, and one with a dot, as seen with Eh. They are nearly identical, but are very different.

Since this post was short, I should have the next four letters posted shortly.

In the interim: A quick glance at the FIFA World Cup

It has been far too long since I last posted, and I apologize for the lengthy delay.

I wanted to leave a quick post in the interim as I gather my thoughts for part two of my On building a language from scratch series. The topic of this post? Why, the FIFA World Cup of course!

I’m a big football (soccer) fan, and as such, I can’t help myself from getting excited during these World Cup days! I’ve been rooting for the Stars and Stripes since 2002, and I have no plans on stopping anytime soon. With Mr. Klinsmann at the helm, I feel the USA has a strong foundation when confronting the strong teams within its “Group of Death”. My predictions? The USA takes the games from Ghana and Portugal, and ties against Germany. Round of 16, here we come!
