I really love learning new words and their pronunciations no matter what the language is. I guess, as translators, we’re all alike because one of my friends is really ambitious learning Elvish and long-gone languages. So if this is the case for you and if you wanna get relaxed by learning “other” languages, here is a perfect book for you:
Here is the website that I’ve heard of this book and a brief introduction:
IO9 reports that “Stephen Rogers has put together the ultimate guide to conlangs, or made-up languages, from Klingon and Elvish to Lojban and Esperanto. In his new book A Dictionary of Made-Up Languages, you can learn about Na’vi pronunciation and the word games that mathematicians play. It’s the perfect book for word geeks, as well as anybody who loves language and linguistics. IO9 has an excerpt from the introduction.
