John has a knack for languages. He can speak French, Dutch and Glaswegian(!), as well as carry on a basic conversation in Italian, German, Flemish or Russian (which he studied in university).
Unfortunately I don’t seem to have an aptitude for languages. But I’m certain I’d learn one in a hurry if I relocated to another country because I sure like to talk!
What really interests me, though, are pictorial languages like hieroglyphics. The other day I came across a site, which you might enjoy because it lets you create
your own custom cartouche.
I played around with different words, and “love” (shown here) appealed to me the most. Shorter words with no repetition of letters seem to work best from a graphic point of view.
