Fifth Linguifex Relay

From Linguifex
Jump to: navigation, search


The Fifth Linguifex Relay was a conlang relay, a game of conlingual telephone, on Linguifex. The relay text was written in Tíogall by the relaymaster IlL. The text passed through eleven translations before being retranslated into Tíogall.

Texts

The original text was provided by IlL in his Tíogall language. The text is a love poem written by a (Tíogall equivalent of a) high school girl, for posting on a fanfiction website to represent her shipping of an original character, Toiréir Gruaid, with the charismatic male scientist character Stearras Seille from the TV show ___. The poem uses the Burns stanza, which is more common in Tíogall poetry than in English poetry.

Toħdádhéach - Warming Up to You

The relay ran from May 22nd, 2017 until June 7th, 2017, and included 5 languages on the wiki (Tíogall, Windermere, Dyrel, I Kronurum, and Rejistanian).

Warming Up to You
Toiréir Gruaid

[...]

Though I know you will wither as a corpse, [Or: Even when you have withered as a corpse]
I still gladly bask in your warmth, [Or: I would still bask in memories of your warmth]
For the same warmth nurtures curiosity,
The leaves of knowledge -
A garden that you have planted in this plot of land,
and forever will keep.

Even though I know that you will die in the end
I so enjoy being in your warmth
Because this warmth increases desire to know
There are leaves of knowledge
A garden that you placed on this earth
And that forever remains

Much enjoyment
Daryl Garrett

Though I know you die in the end
I much like staying in your fire
Because said fire makes me want to know.
Knowledge-leaves go to
(A) meadow you put in the world
And will stay for ages.

Ηθάσπη παινἐνόναση πας χυίλλη ἑνόυση καιπή,

Λαι βαζήα: ἱναι, πάζι ιντυκόσον θαλόςκαι δαώνι,
λαι παςμα παιλώ ήια λαι βυλόνι λαι θαυίσι
– ἱα μαζήυα πασθαδάς.

– ναι Παιναζόυθαι Άωβύαἰ, Υλόψα θόυρροξ

I want to make us happy like I had us happy in past,
nevertheless we will later die.

And understand: that where the fallowlands will be made green with sprouting leaves,
and like the days and months and years go:
that breath as in ancient times.

May we, who were once content/grateful, be content/grateful again,
even though we'll eventually die.
And consider/understand this: the one in the barren soil where leaves will grow,
the one who moves by like the day and the night and the passing of time;
that's the spirit of old.

When a person gives thanks, again should he give thanks
Though he may one day die.
He may think that on the barren soil there grow leaves.
The old souls pass by like the sun shines and sets and time passes.

When a man gives praise and thanks, let him do so repeatedly!
Die he will one day,
but he must have faith that leaves can sprout from barren soil.
For the spirit-complex is ever actively present,
so long as it dawns and dusks, and so long as time passes.
