Post Tonkpeh Vuhlkansu / Hello Vulcans!
on: February 3, 2018, 19:05

Hello everyone, I've come here to greet everyone and share speakvulcantome.tumblr.com ; recently I've decided to not just translate phrases, but to learn the Vulcan language, the grammar is fascinating and the root-word phonology is explanatory in so many words, in ways I can't describe.

There are courses for Vulcan on memrise.com if you need other places to learn. I plan in a year to start an only-vulcan language thread here if able and only reply back-and-forth with others in the language. I'm open to that now, but if not, okay too because I'm not fluent yet.............!

If this obsession pans-out, I'll have new materials to share plus my hobby speakvulcantome.tumblr.com and should vli institute's site vanish again, that too.

I'm going to update this thread every X days on my calendar to keep everyone updated - because I'm obsessed, oddly enuf, I want to establish Vuhlkansu, then saturate Tlingansu, then see if developing Rihansu is still possible... and it'll definitely be cleaner for archives if to keep status/progress updates on a thread instead of starting cluttering new forum topics.

I'm stumped -
I'm sorta confused getting the proper phrasing svi'Vuhlkansu because the english grammar seems self-referencing for me to get the order right - the quote is

"The one self-knowledge worth having is to know one’s own mind." by FH Bradley,

and wanted to translate it, but "worth having is" seems like three verbs in a row, then "one's own" seems like i could omit 'one's' and nam-tor can be stated by describing the noun, is it

"Kerik ma fai-tukh t’shai goh fai-tor kashek t’du."

or am i missing it....?

I think your translation is right, often we can’t translate exactly all the words in Vuhlkansu and so we need to get creative, but your translation is perfectly understandable to me.
