The two languages I want to learn are Hebrew and Welsh. We have Hebrew, but not Welsh... *glances at giveaway and drools*

why welsh?

Well, Amaranthine, it's a long, complicated story. Kinda.

I love Lord of the Rings. Tolkien loosely based his Elvish languages off of Finnish and Welsh. I learned a good deal of Elvish (Quenya and Sindarin) but then grew interested in Welsh as several actors that I liked were Welsh. I have this weird obsession with Wales. I want to go there. I study the culture, I want to speak the language... the whole deal. It was during one of my large fantasy-writing spurts, and I was world-building to an insane degree. I've based alot of this one people group off the Welsh. Plus, the language is soooo pretty.

There. Everything you didn't want to know about me and Wales. In a very incoherent paragraph. :P
