Homophonic Telephone: Brief Update

The homophonic telephone project is five steps in right now. So far the translation has gone from English -> German-> Polish-> Faroese-> German. I won't spoil final product but here are a few memorable lines in translation:

       - Ulf likes the / sea so much.
       - I’m weighing poppy seeds / at the sheriff’s place.
       - I waterwash Kyðja, you, inside a gasoven.
       - Cotton is to wash cows.

I've been surprised at how well some of the sounds and structures have maintained themselves from translation to translation. More in the next few months.
