They appear to be communicating with us, Captain

Now this… this is ‘focused’ – a blog written in Klingon. As far as I can tell, the post contents look pretty standard – Harry Potter, vanity goggling… Just in Klingon. Fascinating. [via Biz Stone]

  1. Yup. That’s Capt. Krankor’s blog. The documentary that was filmed at last year’s qep’a’ (i.e. the KLI’s version of JadeCon ) was screened at Cannes – which is what the top post is about. (I haven’t seen it yet, so I’m not sure if I made it into the final edit or not.)

    And before ya ask – I’d need my dictionary & a couple hours before I could read the site. ;-)

  2. Nope, it’s my blog. The picture on the front page at the moment is Krankor.

    The declared subject of the blog is “this language [i.e. Klingon] and other languages.”

    I’m looking at linguistics and language, with occasional forays into anything I feel like, because only a few dozen people can read it anyway.

    Recent posts include
    – a preliminary report on a new thesis on the sociolinguistics of Klingon
    – a confused series of posts on why my traffic jumped from 20 to 1000 hits a day (turned out Blogger featured me)
    – a linguistic error (substituting the syllable or word meaning “your” for “my”) that I made in three languages, including my native tongue
    – a challenge to translate a boggling sentence
    – Parseltongue, a snake language created for Harry Potter

    And r’Hul – you are DEFINITELY in the film.
