Hi, guys. I used to be "Tolkienaic" before the crash, but I've decided to change the name now. So here's a new intro topic for the new forum:
My real name is Wil and I live in the southwest United States. I'm currently a sophomore in college working on a BA in Linguistics. My main area of interest is Historical Linguistics concentrating primarily on Indo-European languages (specifically Germanic) and the reconstructed Proto-Indo-European language.
I am currently studying Old English on my own time and later hope to learn it at college-level, and I have a general idea of several other Germanic languages. I have studied Spanish for about six years now, but I am not (nor, I think, ever will be) conversationally fluent in it.
I am an avid conlanger and have constructed several languages on my own (although none of them are very realistic), in addition to my main five-year language and mythology which, I am convinced, will never be complete. On the old forum I was also involved in the Omni project, which I hope to continue.
And that's me.
Welcome to the new forum!
