I would love to join this swap...but I'm a native (American) English speaker, y solomente hablo un pocito del espanol.  And a handful of words from a handful of other languages.  If only I'd studied language in college instead of music!

Well, you don't have a lot of grammar background, but with words like allegro, tutti, adagio, etc. I bet you have a bunch of possibilities for vocabulary.  Smiley I had a friend who liked to say that music is its own foreign language (I agreed with him until I took Russian. It's amazing what a difference verb declensions and noun cases makes to simple vocabulary).

If only I had registered myself on this site sooner. I've been something of a professional lurker around here for a couple of years Sad I'd also have been able to throw in some Inuktitut stuff myself! Either way though, I plan to keep a close eye on this swap - sounds very interesting!

I'm too snuffly to look it up right now, but I believe there have been some conlangs constructed that use music to 'speak'. Music certainly has a script all of its own (not the notations like allegro and sforzando,) but the use of the stave and the notes and what the notes look like - they are a writing script ('alphabet') because they encode meaning. Something like that. Like I said, I'm snuffly.

Awwww ya'll rock (can you tell I'm from the southeast? haha).  If you think I'd have something linguistically novel to offer, I'll definitely join as soon as I get my feedback...because I do so love languages.  I don't understand how there are people in the world that don't care about other places and don't like to travel, see new things, or meet new people.  It boggles my mind.  Oy!  Ok, I'm going to get down off my soapbox now Wink

we need more with RockDragon's attitude in the (USA) southeast.
although i have to say i have seen a lot of progress in my students' attitudes.  even the attitudes they come into language courses with, let alone the ones they leave with (^_^)

Just leaving a note that you wont be hearing from me for the next couple of days. I left my laptop at my boyfriend's place to make sure I would spend my free time studying for my Nihongo (Japanese) test this Saturday. Ja mata! (casual way of saying "See you later")

STATE OF THE SWAP ADDRESS

Gentle swappers!

I  have just done my Friday updates of everyone. If you could all take a brief moment to check your profiles, and make sure that this swap is listed there as being 'In Progress', that would be absolutely splendid. You only need to let me know if it's wrong.


We have 15 swappers so far, and we're halfway through our signups. This is turning out a beautifully sized swap.

And although I've not yet started to properly match people to people, it does seem as if we should be able to match everyone up one on one - it may mean that some of you won't get your #1 language, some of you might have to brush up a little on a language you only have a bare bit of knowledge about, but we're all tough Craftsters, and challenge just inspires us to do better.

If you're looking at this swap, and wondering if there's any use for your Japanese skills, the answer is YES. YES there is.

Tomorrow your humble organiser has to lace up her skates and, if you'll pardon the strong language, go smash some bitches. It's my debut rollerderby bout, and I'm a wee bit keyed up about it.

And talking of sports and games - how about a crafted item that's a traditional/local game or something of that ilk?

This is a game I was taught in Indonesia: http://www.expat.or.id/info/congklak
And I can't help but think that games like this would make a) a great way to teach, say, directions and numbers; and b) an awesome crafted item.
