    My Corruption

    When I came here I was incomprehensible but over time I learnt to write like this so you could understand me. But the price has been my corruption.

    My language has been corrupted on Typology Central.

    It took a long time to find my own language and I am a little surprised to find it is gone.

    It is gone but not forgotten, and it calls me back.

    So as I go back, I will follow a personal discipline, as well as look for a conducive environment.

    I find this a little scary and I am uncertain about how to proceed.

    @Mole I think you're still pretty good on the having your own language part.

    I still have to take a good couple minutes to decipher what you're saying

    This is cause when u write its similar to poetry...and I'm not good at understanding poetry

    What makes u think its been corrupted?

    Language is alive and it's evolution is inevitable when one comes in contact with another. It can be very difficult for speakers who are a minority and feel a personal connection to their language. You could start to write down differences between the language you claim and the one others speak. That way you can consciously choose to use words or word order that you feel most connected with. Isn't it amazing how personal language can be? Just think of the Mayans or the Navajo who watched their languages get sucked up by Europeans. The only thing they can do is work to preserve their language. And the first step to that is to write it down. Best of luck in saving your language! Let me know if I can help. I'd love to!
    You hem me in -- behind and before;
    you have laid your hand upon me.
    Such knowledge is too wonderful for me,
    too lofty for me to attain.

    Well, nicolita, language can be extrinsic or intrinsic.

    Extrinsic language is practical language, language for a purpose, while intrinsic language is language for its own sake.

    So we speak extrinsic language, while intrinsic language speaks us.

    But prior to our Fall, we used language just for its own sake, just for the pleasure of speaking. And so in the Garden of Eden before the Fall, language spoke us.

    I think I have been corrupted because I now write in clichés. Of course I am aware I write in clichés, and so I write in ironic clichés.

    However I am being called by the deep down freshness of things, the deep down freshness of words.

    Clichés have been in too many mouths, and there are words just aching to be born.

    I think I have a tendency to assume, because of the kind of language that you use, that you are inviting intellectual discussion.

    I think what you're actually doing, though, is something more like creative writing. So when someone starts picking it apart (as someone who believes in the cult of MBTI... the Ti users seem to do this most often) you see them as calling your artwork shitty.

    I think if you used a "wetter", "warmer" style of communication, I would be less prone to doing this. (That sounds dirty somehow.)
    [Trump's] rhetoric is not an abuse of power. In the same way that it's also not against the law to do a backflip off of the roof of your house onto your concrete driveway. It's just mind-numbingly stupid and, to say the least, counterproductive. - Bush did 9-11


    This is not going to go the way you think....

    Don't take a step backwards, Lark.
