Sometimes I wish I went to school for linguistics, or translation, or even just creative writing. This poem was so super fun to work on. I used the IPA (International Phonetic Alphabet) to double check the pronunciations of these phrases to make sure the word-flow sounds okay, although I don’t speak all of these languages so, in actuality, this poem might sound clunkier in real life than it does in my head.
