Why are you learning High Valyrian ?
I am getting curious that why are you learning High Valyrian ? It isn't a popular language. It is not much useful in the communication. I want to know your reasons .
Thanks for sharing !
Same as the reason for learning Sindarin and Klingon: it's from literature I like and I want another way to be close to that world. In an interview I mentioned trying to learn Sindarin during the LOTR movie days and my future employer started talking to me in Sindarin.
I chose Valyrian as the language spoken by some people in my D&D setting, and it's also the mother tongue of two of our PCs. I like throwing in names and phrases that are actually valid, so getting to know the language is useful in that sense.
Plus y'know, the good ol' regular "it's just really interesting in general".
It would be awesome if my friends or boyfriend wanted to learn and we used it as our secret language, but alas, they are all learning Spanish and Greek and other languages that they are likely to actually encounter in the real world. lol. So I'm learning it anyway, because I'm addicted to learning and it's just a beautiful language. Maybe if I speak it around my friends, they will gain interest?
For several factors; not only is it a unique language, and so very interesting to understand how it works, but it also enhances my ability to learn other languages because I've started to understand cases, as well as how other features like animate/inanimate works. Finally, the unique gender system, as well as being a constructed language appeals to me. It's interesting to see how a languages would be if we could create them ourselves, rather than them appearing logically.
Too long/didn't read? It's because it's interesting to learn. I'd recommend it. It's why I'm learning Turkish as well.
