Topic: Speak in Mando'a

So this might be the wrong category but it does have to do with dialogue...I was thinking that maybe start a thread restricted to speaking in Mando'a. Itd give people a chance who want to converse in the language a chance and also allow people who don't speak it to have a reason to. The topic would start general but then get more variety in words. Just an idea but i'd be up for it on a constant basis.

The one I linked is way more up-to-date. Karen updates them quarter-yearly, IIRC, but mostly on her site only.

This was something I was actually thinking about. I may not know it yet but I would love to. Too bad it doesn't count as college credit.

Re: Speak in Mando'a

Yeah I took about 3 years of high school of Italian. I think languages all sort of relate to one another, so there should be something to make it easier. Even if its knowing how to study a language.

Good keep it up I say. When you stop using it so much is when you forget it, or at least that's what happened to me.

Re: Speak in Mando'a

Here's a Mando'a Language Dictionary I've been working on. The first part, mostely complete, is the alphabet and grammar. The second part is the dictionary, not even close to being finished.

What do you think?

Re: Speak in Mando'a

you know what i think?I think Mando'a is stupid. Travis thinks she can do all that all by herself? All of a sudden she can create a Mandolorian language and not talk to the old Fandalorians? she's full of herself. she has no right to write about Boba, no one does, but all the Boba Fett fans should. This goes for Mando'a too.

Is Huttese stupid? Is Klingon stupid? No...they're not. You know why? Because someone actually took the time to create the language, same as Ms. Travis did.  If you think the languages are "stupid" create one for yourself, you'll see how hard it is to do (Trust me, I created several. Not an easy task.) so give her some credit. At least she gave us a language for our Mandos. Besides, she has to get permission from Lucas or whoever is in charge of those things to get it published, so she probably isn't doing it all by herself.

About that writing. You say she can't write Boba but a fan can? Isn't that kind of counterdictive? Besides, she's probably a Boba/Mandalorian fan herself, otherwise why would she write stories for him?
