my dead language

I find this result particularly amusing because back in my 20's, when I traveled in SF Fandom circles, I had a friend whose post grad studies were in dead languages. One night to amuse him, I postulated a cultural event where a rink could be filled with clay, and then dancers wearing triangle shaped shoes would come out and perform on the surface, after which it would be projected onto some sort of large screen (diamondvision) and he would come out and read it to us. Then, the language zamboni would clear the surface and Act II would begin.


Your Score: Akkadian


You are Akkadian, a blend of the incomprehensible symbols of the Sumerians with the unwritable sounds of the early Semitic peoples. However, the writing just doesn't suit the words and doesn't represent everything needed, so you end up a schizoid mess. Invented in Babylon, you're probably to blame for that tower story. However, crazy as you are, you're much loved and appreciated, and remain actively in use by records keepers long after schools have switched to other languages.
