Re: The health of the Klingon language vs the health of the KLI
If the beginners' grammarian often forgets that he is the beginners'
grammarian, perhaps it is time for him to choose a replacement.
Besides correcting beginners and guiding them, a big part of being BG
is prodding the general population into greater activity.
It's not just a responsive job. It's a proactive one. If you aren't up
to it these days -- all the BGs eventually reach that state -- then
it's time for a new BG. Basically, the task is not sustainable, but
for a year or two, new energy from a new BG can be a wonderful thing
for this list.
I cannot volunteer, myself, at this time, since I just got sucked into
one of the most personally satisfying and passionate new hobbies of my
life and I need a lot of time to do it well. Perhaps there is someone
else out there with skill and passion for the Klingon language who can
bring the list back to life?
Oh, and I'm a beta tester for the new iPhone/Touch app. Still tweaking
the details, but when it comes out, you want it bad enough that if you
don't have an iPhone or Touch yet, you'll probably want one, just to
run this thing.
