A friend suggested telephone as model for an experiment with homophonic translation, translation that reproduces sound rather than meaning (see previous blog contest posts here and here). The idea is to take a poem, homophonically translate it into another language then have the new text homophonically translated into another language and on and on until it ends back in English, changed by its trans-lingual travel.
I'm looking for translators for the experiment - preferably ones whose native language is not English. Email me at email@example.com if you are interested. I'll post the results on my blog to show the progression of the text.
