Chicago Ted

Paroli nur unu lingvon estas uzi nur unu koloron de farbo. La lingvo de amikeco ne estas vortoj, sed signifoj.

What Have I Written?

Where Are My Guests From?

This Way, Nay That Way

A single Leaf,
Hanging to a Branch;
The Wind blew it around,
This way, nay that way,
Until one day,
The Leaf decided to fall off.

The falling Leaf,
Dancing in the Wind;
It traversed the countryside,
This way, nay that way,
Until it reached a River,
And landed in it.

The floating Leaf,
Sailing in the River;
It meandered through the valley,
This way, nay that way,
Until it reached a calm stretch,
And washed ashore.

Two botanists,
Finding this Leaf;
They were arguing its origins,
“This way!” “Nay, that way!”
Until they reached the decision,
It came from upstream.

This pressed Leaf,
Being auctioned off;
The highest bid was swaying around,
This way, nay that way,
Until one Man won,
For not a small sum.

That same Man,
Accidentally dropping his Leaf;
The fragments scattered in the Wind,
This way, nay that way,
Until they reached the forest,
That they came from.

There's a whole series of translations of this poem here. Feel free to add another if you want, provided it isn't already done.

[English] Who Am I?

Greetings, visitor! My name is Chicago Ted, a typical user on Fimfiction. I have a passion for foreign/non-English languages, video games, and, naturally, My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic. I can speak Esperanto, Albanian, and Kēlen, and if you like, I can translate works into those languages. I hope we can become good friends. Take care!

Thanks for the favorite!:pinkiesmile:

I follow you because combine

You forgot to delete the accusative -n from "vortojn" and "signifojn"; the verb "esti" doesn't have accusative.

Gah. Right, I ought to correct my Esperanto. (Coming from an American English background, case declension still seems to be a foreign concept to me!)

The Chinese one isn't mine, it's BlackDenimCap's. Talk to him about it.

Thanks for dropping by, fellow language fan!

Hi! I'm a big fan of languages, especially constructed ones, and I see that you have a passion for languages too! :twilightsmile:

I noticed something in your Bio, though:

Paroli nur unu lingvo estas uzi nur unu koloro de farbo. La lingvo de amikeco ne estas vortojn, sed signifojn.

Shouldn't that be:

Paroli nur unu lingvon estas uzi nur unu koloron de farbo. La lingvo de amikeco ne estas vortoj, sed signifoj.

Also, the Chinese "Who Am I" is a bit weird in some places.

And about time, too!

Oh, and thanks for the watch.

no zombie is safe from Chicago Ted

A watch. For you. Reason being: Equimorphic Objects need more love!

Would you? Sure!

PM me the results when you're done.

Hey, thanks for the favorite on Project R.U.M.P. I would make a pun here, but I think I've made enough in that story, doncha think? :pinkiesmile:

Thank you for leaving a comment and adding your favorite list!

It's great to meet someone with a crazy but creative mind such as yourself :twilightsmile:. Anyways, it's a pleasure to meet you! :raritystarry::twilightsheepish::pinkiehappy::rainbowkiss: Any chance you're a writer? (Yes, IK you have one story in your prof, but sometimes ppl only write when they want) If yes, I can offer you or you can offer me a hoof in writing. :ajsmug: It's also another way to know ppl better. That is, by sharing each others ideas :raritystarry::pinkiehappy:

Also, love your memes! If you have a blog, I would gladly follow it! :rainbowkiss: You're sense of humor is just the kind of humor I'm looking for in ppl :rainbowlaugh::rainbowlaugh:

Yours truly,
MysticCptTidalStirling29 ;P (<-- Just so you know, that face right there is actually my signature on quotes or whatever such as this) :raritywink:

Solid L4D reference there.


¿Kiel vi fartas?

Nice to meet you. I must admit, I don't have an interest in language, but I do find linguists fascinating.

Damn where were you when I was killing all those zombies.

Thank you for adding M.A. Larson Pisses off Colgate to your favorites.

I just remembered what your name comes from. :rainbowlaugh:

Linguafics: Unu Lingvo Neniam Sufiĉas


On Transcribing the Albanian Language · 3:23am Nov 22nd, 2015

Until 22 November 1907, the Albanian language was written in a wide variety of alphabets. There was a Greek version, a Cyrillic version, an Arabic version, a few varying Latin versions-- and the several home-grown scripts that never saw widespread use.
