The Twenty-First Conlang Relay

The Twenty-first Conlang Relay took place from 22 October to 28 November of 2013. The torch proceeded along two rings, containing 17 torches in Ring 1 and 14 torches in Ring 2, including the final translations back into merɛ́chi (Ring 1 forthcoming).

I chose a deliberately weird text for this relay, hoping to see more mutation than in the very concrete and repetitive text chosen for Relay 19: instructions for playing the Wii Fit Plus game Balance Bubble Plus (image at right), written as if the recipient were actually in the world of the video game. To keep the text short, I truncated the instructions after describing the beginning of the game, only briefly summarizing the rest of the challenges the player would face.

Keep your eye on the bees!
