a lazy sometimes wriggling linguist

i guess i have got a worm somewhere deep who is a lazy linguist. linguist as in it starts wriggling on the top of its ass as soon as it sees a new language which interests him and lazy as in it goes dead as soon as the technicality associated with any new script/language poses a challenge.

it started long back when i went for two classes in one of my summer vacation to an aunt to learn telugu. she till this day laugh at me over that. then came a seemingly serious effort when i spent considerable [and valuable] time learning german. after around five years of that effort, the most i can do is i can recognise german from other languages written in the same script.

and some pictures on flickr are amazing

Totally irrelevant to this post, I like the word "wriggle", brings into my mind this picture of that slimy, squid like animal/insect trying to escape but being unable to due to its own sliminess..and with that I turn into a sadist!!
Learning languages requires a lot of effort, patience and persistence and I lack the willingness to devote any/all the three into something I'll never use..
