    You are what you think.
    • Lately I'm telling people: if you have an itch to learn a language, go learn American Sign Language. It's good and good for you! Really, it switches on whole new parts of your brain.

      Or if you want vocal languages, learn Haitian. Or Hopi! Or Hawai'ian! Or Maori! Or Malay! Or Swahili! Or Tagalog! Or hell, Nahuatl, or Korean, or Hindi, or Tamil, or Vietnamese! Each of these is as interestingly non-European as Klingon is, each in its own way. Each of these languages has a real, huge, imaginative lit

        The best of these languages, and the worst about Klingon, is that they have a real native user base. Well... until an actual Klingon population gets discovered.

        Talk about Klingon is purely on an academical level. It's like talking about programming without a computer in sight. The proof that you ideas work is in making the program run, the proof of the pudding is in the eating. Just like nothing beats talking to those people in their native language.
