You thought you were in an exclusive relationship with a language slut?

I'm ok with your language infidelity. But not your people infidelity.

So, you're saying we're exclusive?

If we were exclusive, how would we ever have study groups?

That reminds me of the several Whatsapp groups I created and included just me and my wife.

And eskandar had me all to himself in the Persian study group, dEhiN had me all to himself in the Tamil study group, and there were a few other study groups I was in with at least two people but without księżycowy.

A guy involved in Elfdalian language revival sent me some materials in English and Swedish, it has given me a powerful wanderlust for both Swedish and Elfdalian. Kanske borde jag ta upp min svenska igen för att kunna använda materialen...

I would not have understood that entire sentence without looking up some of the words if not for my Swedish colleague occasionally IMing me in Swedish so her ex (or, at the time, husband) wouldn't understand what she was saying.

Me too! I wonder why. :hmm:

Thankfully at this point in my Urdu study a big part of what I’m doing is acquiring literary Persianisms so that allows me to partially sate my wanderlust... although I did do a Persian lesson on GLOSS as well.

I dislike the word wanderlust, but I have a strong desire to learn Walloon. No idea why other than it sounds cool to me :|
