Along with the 1980s stuff, my novel seems to feature the language Esperanto, so I thought it would be nice if I had some practice?
For those who have for some reason never heard of the language, it’s a constructed language meant to make it easier for people to communicate. Most Esperanto speakers learned it as teens or adults – there are precious few people who have Esperanto as a native language.
The bit under the cut is a few sentences I wrote in Esperanto. I am still working on fluency, but I think at least some of my basics are sound. (Native speaker I am not.) It’s a bit rantish and has a four-letter word in the end.
Oh, and someone at AO3 noticed I was writing Esperanto fanfic (I always kept meaning to mention this to support, but I forgot….) and now I can select Esperanto as a language on that site! I’m probably the only Esperantist on the site, but still, I get more hits than I do on ffn for those stories, so I might as well just keep posting there.
