Skolotoi Words

Postby Widukind » 2018-11-19, 11:40

Interesting. The author seems to have provided his... sources. At least he admits that the language can't be learned (but who knows, maybe there is an undiscovered source out there).

Any thoughts on this sort of stuff?


Edit: I find it interesting that the word "cannabis" (yes, that certain plant) is cited as one of theirs.

That's another discussion for a different place, I think.
