Matoran Language Dictionary + Grammar System

Post by The Cracken on Thu Aug 07, 2014 1:08 am

So while browsing Tumblr tonight (no I don't do that often I don't) I came across this guy who's working on his PhD in linguistics... And he's a huge Bionicle fan. So he compiled a dictionary of the Matoran language, along with an explanation on its grammar, based on research he's done and official info from Greg Farshtey. It's not some little project either, this thing is /extensive/. It's one of the coolest fan projects I've ever seen. Razz

I tried to read it, but I wish he did something with Tolkien's languages. I don't suppose you saw those lying around? xD

I knew of the project before but never really read it, to be honest. I haven't seen anything but praise for it. It really is an extensive, well constructed project.

(FYI, the BZPower user who compiled the dictionary and primer also has some really good short fan-fiction, so you should check that out, too.)
