linguae novae!

Mr Lord and Mr Coppell got the IIIrd and IVth form WP to devise, in groups, a new language, or, rather, enough of a new language to translate the English “The yellow shepherd saved his master’s sheep from the yellow grandmother’s teeth. Hooray! Let’s party!”. They were asked to try and:

  • use sounds which weren’t part of English, e.g. clicks
  • think about how to express grammatical relationships in different ways
  • make their language sound interesting.

Mr Coppell has judged the attempts, and the winners will be announced in an assembly.
