Áya Dan YouTube channel

ayadan

It doesn’t have any content uploaded yet, but I’ve created a YouTube channel for Áya Dan. Since multiple people can be set to contribute to a single channel, my hope is that we can get several contributors to post content whenever they have spare time.

I have separate personal channels for each conlang I’ve spent time learning, but with full time work and part time gradschool, I find myself lacking spare time to do much with.

If you’re interested in subscribing, the channel is here: https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCJiwii5O87i8fedse_O06ow (We need 100 subscribers before we can have a custom URL)

And if you’re interested in contributing some work – it can be any kind of work, as long as it is about, or in, a conlang – please reach out to me.

Incubus, laŭvorte

Raye Chell Mahela

Today in my boredom I bring you… Incubus! Laŭvorte!

Most of you Esperantists know that Incubus is a movie in Esperanto. More or less. It’s pretty bad Esperanto. So I took some clips of the film and tried to sub it with the “Esperanto” that comes from the actors’ mouths as best as I could.

It is such a strange movie. In and of itself, it has some merit (though it isn’t really my style of flick), but it can be hard to focus on the story when people are speaking so poorly.

The Láadan Classroom – Set 1

Raye Chell Mahela

I created five videos about Láadan last weekend – three lessons, a review, and an extra one on name translation/transliteration. :)

Please check them out! If you post up a video on YouTube to your own work in Láadan (vlog, song, practicing, short story, etc.) then I will link to it in a future lesson video!

Lesson 1: Basic Sentences

Lesson 2: Tenses, Yes/No Questions, and Pronouns

Lesson 3: Conjugations and Objects

Extra – Translating your name into Láadan

Review – Lessons 1 through 3


Know any interesting Láadan links? You should post it on the /r/Laadan subreddit!

With, Withid, e bebáa? – Woman, man, or what?

Láadan’s ability to describe gender is difficult.


 

My quest for animation software continues. Linux-based software is sorely lacking in this regard. Sure, there’s software like Synfig, but it lacks features that even my 1999 Flash editor has. 😐
