Everybody, in addition to flipping through those books
- Watch "Tusk" by Fleetwood Mac on YouTube. This should fill you with patriotic pride, being one of our national songs, and the one after which King Robert I named his Talossan language newspaper so instrumental to the development of the language.
- After you're done with that, use The Översteir to look up anywhere from 10 to 20 nouns, preferably with a theme like "colours"or "months" or something.
- Then (using Google Translate or a dictionary or whatever) look up those same nouns in a different Romance language (Lüc, you're not allowed to use Italian, and ditto for anyone else who speaks a Romlang natively).
- Comment, if you wish, on the similarities and differences you see (if any). That is, if you see that Spanish and Talossan are similar except that the word-ending in Spanish is -o where Talossan is -eu, say so. And if you notice things that are DIFFERENT, like the appearance of a Germanic (non-Romance) sound in an otherwise Romance-derived word, point out that you noticed it.
Turn in your list by 11:59 pm Talossan time (UTC-5) on Saturday.
Now, I'm off to get this some iodine/bactine/something for this whip-mark.
