i'm happy to be part of the community. hope to get to know y'all better in the future.

my real name's travis, by the way.

Welcome! In your wanderings through the EG you might want to take a look at the languages and linguistics section and offer up your thoughts (& maybe a writeup or two) on the development of languages, human and otherwise, in the setting. We have some descendants of English written into the setting that might easily be as far from our current language as present-day English is from PIE, but we've not much depth or detail on the subject yet. On the topic of fiction, this is a side of the project we're hoping will see more attention in the future so I'm looking forward to your first contributions.

this is something i can easily and, i reckon, greatly help with and i'll be putting energy towards that.

if the descendants of english spoken in certain places in the OA is as far from current english as english is from PIE, then it's basically the creation of a new language. PIE and english have some similar morphology and vocabulary, but it's somewhat attenuated, and what little indo-europeanists can agree on about what PIE 'looked like' would be incomprehensible to speakers of any any current day descendant languages. only students and specialists have a hope of getting it, usually.

i'll look at the languages section, which i already have skimmed.

thanks for the help.
your praise is sweet
