I also decided to learn the way of talking that only has one hundred twenty words. Its name means "good talk". I have learned it a little bit before, but I never finished the book. But maybe now I will.
Here are some great picture stories about the "good talk":
I am also taking a class in another way of talking that comes from the same family as the one I am using now, but came from across the water, and person/thing words change if they are doing something, getting something, have something, or so on.
I also have a hard time staying with just one way of talking, so I have also been studying some other ways of talking too:
- The way of talking that comes from the same part of the world as the one I'm writing in, but towards the right, and it is not in the same family as the lands around it. Words change even more (much much more) than in the way of talking I mentioned earlier. They are well known for a red thing that makes food better.
- I might also spend some time on the way of talking that the Doctor Who Hopes made. But I can never seem to spend much time on this way of talking before I get bored.
- There is a way of talking that comes from the new world, from two lands under the land where I live. It is in the same family as the way of talking that used picture writing before the people from across the water came. It is the most spoken way of talking in that land, that did not come from across the water. This way of talking is famous for a story about how the gods made the world. I took a look at this way of talking because I heard that it does an interesting thing that people like the Doctor Who Hopes, who make up ways of talking, like to use. In my way of talking, you say "he sleeps" or "he sees him." The word "him" is different, because something is being done to "him". But in some ways of talking, if "he" is doing something but not to something, "he" doesn't change. But if "he" is doing something to something, "he" changes but the thing he is doing something to does not change. So in ways of talking like this, you would say something like "he sleeps" but "him sees he" (even though "him" is the one seeing", and "he" is the one being seen).
- I am also interested in an old way of talking that was used in some early stories: some funny stories about people, some sad stories about people and the gods, and some stories about what kind of things people are or what kind of place the world is. People still use this way of talking, but it sounds very different now. They make very good food with a green thing that is like water but doesn't go into water, and food that is made from something that comes out of an animal with long things on its head. I am getting a book about this way of talking, and you can hear people try to speak it even though no one really knows exactly what it sounded like. This book comes from the land that took over the land that my way of talking comes from around ten hundred years ago, and we still use many of their words. I didn't get this book yet but I can't wait until I get it!
