As announced in last week's AGM and last month's AGM, the Guild of Linguists will be running D'ni language lessons in the Cavern.

They will be held in the Guild 'Hood, in the classroom, at 4pm KI time (11pm UTC), every Saturday beginning the 16th. This does include AGM nights, as there should be more than enough time between the end of the AGM and the start of the lessons. I may push the start back a week if too few people will be able to turn up next Saturday.

The first lesson will cover reading, typing, and saying simple phrases in D'ni.

Please post here if you intend to come, or if you want to, but can't make this Saturday (or the current day or time. We'd be happy to change, so long as it's not too inconvenient)

Oenahzo b'yim shemtee tomot! (I hope to see you there!)

Postponing the lessons by a week to take them nicely out of the way of the end of the Obduction Kickstarter.

Anyone coming to the lesson today should grab this file.

Ok, I'm going to postpone this until enough people show up on a Saturday to warrant starting.

@GoMe: Please would you spread the word around the Cavern?

Given that I haven't played in a few months, I'd be interested in going to some of these lessons. My only problem is that I'm not sure I'd be able to attend at 11pm UTC on Saturdays. I could manage 12 instead, but if you're unable to do them at that time then all I can do is wish I was able to attend.

We've decided that the lesson structure isn't the best way to approach this, and we have agreed on an alternative. I'll be announcing it at the AGM a week Saturday, and I'll post here as well. I hope that our new approach will be better for you, and anyone else who's interested, but can't do the given time.

I would love to learn D'ni. I'm not part of the Guild of Greeters officially (I have the shirt, but that's it), but I would really like to go. Which I can, so I will most likely be there.

Will there be a section on reading actual D'ni, as opposed to just romanized D'ni? There are a few things in Ae'gura and the neighborhoods that are in D'ni (the only things that come to mind are clocks and the map for Negilahn, Dereno, Payiferen, and Tetsonot) and I would really like to know how to read them. It would probably be beneficial as well, for some of it at least.

Both the D'ni script and the romanisations are covered together right at the beginning of the course. We will probably visit the City to find the various texts there to read them.

You can get an idea of it in the Kings' Hall: the names of each king on the journals correspond to those along the wall. Of course, some journals are missing 8)

Now, I wonder if D'ni text could be enabled as BB code, something like:
Code:
[dni].rekUan treKleft preniv legloen b'rem[/dni]

Perhaps also (for those of us who prefer NTS):
Code:
[dni-lm].rekúan trekleft preniv legloen b'rem[/dni-lm]

Update as per the AGM last night: Scheduling of the lessons by us has been scrapped. If you wish to have lessons, PM either myself or a member of the Guild, and you can choose a date and time that fits in your schedule (though one of us needs to be available as well to teach!) You can use this forum, the Guild website, or Moula itself to contact us.

It would really be kewl if you could just type your native language between the tags and have it translate into the D'ni result.

Cool, but insanely hard. Cf Google Translate.

Hey, just curious...I know you're switching to a "by appointment" system for the language lessions. Would it be possible for you have a time one day each month for scheduling the appointment in-person in the cavern?

(Like after the AGM or something? I know time is valuable and all that....)

Just a thought on my part.

Yes, that could be done. I would've done so this month, but I had to rush after the end of the meeting.
