My real name is Jacob; Sheidhaf was my name in the original version of my conlang, Shsiowhe. Since I began on the forum my interest in conlangery has faded into a lot more of an interest in linguistics and foreign languages, not to say that I wasn't interested in the beginning, but now I've suspended work on my conlang for a while. I can speak fairly decent Modern Greek, pretty good German, a little Spanish, Russian and Chinese. I speak a dialect of English very close to SAE and I live in the middle of nowhere in Ohio. I'm 15 years old, but nobody ever notices because I'm rather tall. That should be enough information to go off of. I'm rather shy, though, so it you may not get too much more.

Welcome to the new Omniglot forum!

Wow, you are tall...at least compared to me :oops: Haven't measured myself in a while but last I checked I was about 1 meter...Of course I come from a shortie family


OH MY GOD I AM SUCH AN IDIOT! :oops: :shock: :x I forgot that a meter was 3 feet. Never mind, I'm not a dwarf! I'm actually almost 2 meters tall...

I'm 15 and ~1.74m I don't think 1.56m is that tall... I'm actually rather average at my school with many taller people. One of friends is 1.90m.

Imperial (for those it'd be easier to see in your head)
1.56m = 5'1.5''

1.74 = a little less than 5'9''

1.90 = 6'3''

Just wanted to mention in the 1970's or 1980's the US government tried to change us to metric but it didn't take very well.

I definitely made a major error in my conversion to metric. I'm actually about 1.77m. Sorry about that.
