I'm taking a college class right now called "Linguistic Field Methods". (I don't want to bore anyone with the specifics, but if you want to know what that is, please ask.)  Our professor required us each to have a bound journal, not just a spiral notebook.  So I thought "Wait, I know how to make those!" and "Wouldn't it be cool to have a personalized one and not just some boring thing with a puppy on the front from WalMart?"  The result (using the tute found here: http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=10347.0 ):



The embroidery says "Field Methods" in the special linguistics alphabet we use, and "Fall '05".



I pasted a copy of the chart with all the special symbols we use on the first page.



A ribbon bookmark, and I'm totally ready to take a crazy amount of notes.  Woot!   Cheesy

that looks great!  I really like the embroidery on the cover.  I am an English major, but I don't really know anything about linguistic field methods.. your alterna-alphabet is intriguing, I may have to check that out.

The alphabet we use is called the IPA - International Phonetic Alphabet.  It (supposedly) has a symbol for every speech sound in every language in the world.  It's pretty exciting.  If you care, Wikipedia has some great information about it, as well as sound samples for each symbol.  http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/International_Phonetic_Alphabet

Great journal! I loved linguistics in college, as English majors we could take that instead of grammar. I drove my teacher nuts on tests because I grew up on the west coast and was raised by Vermonters so my accent was a hybrid. I would have to say every word on the test while she checked my IPA spelling.

Mmm ... IPA.

I took a linguistics course during my last semester in college, and loved it to bits. Once we called the symbol for [tsh] "Trogdor". It was fabulous. We also had one girl in our class from northern Minn., and she had a very Norwegian 'o' ... she demonstrated many times.

Oh my goodness.  On the verge of tears due to the laughing.  I'm so nerdy that I know exactly which symbol you're talking about, and yes, it totally looks like Trogdor.  That's freaking awesome.

I think I've completely forgotten the phonetic alphabet from my linguistics class.  Luckily I still have my books, so I can brush up.  I just remember the schwa--that upside down backward e--because that's the sound at the beginning and end of my name (Amanda).  Plus, "schwa" just sounds funny.  Unfortunately, that's all that really changes in my name between the alphabets:  əmandə

Anyway, the embroidery in IPA is really nifty.  Extra credit for making your own and incorporating the class into it.
