Earlier in December, the podcast of constructed languages, Conlangery #115, was released. A “conlang” is a constructed language, such as Elvish, Klingon or Esperanto. This particular episode focused on the Tsolyáni language. Victor Raymond, as the chair of the Tékumel Foundation, was the featured guest. The podcast goes into the history of Tsolyáni and of Prof. Barker, and the background of Empire of the Petal Throne and the world of Tékumel. The hosts, George Corley and William Annis, discussed the unique nature of Tsolyáni as a constructed language, its linguistic character, and how Tsolyáni has been used in a gaming context. It’s definitely worth a listen!
