In this activity, you will consider the nature of word choice in LÃ¡adan more closely. Please read through the page Some Background on LÃ¡adan, which condenses some quotes of Elgin’s. With that context in hand, you will be asked to examine the words in LÃ¡adan and Klingon and then write up a summary of your explorations. You should plan to devote 1 hour to looking through the lexicon’s of these languages and 1 hour to writing up a 250 word response.
Elgin claims in her discussion of the origin of LÃ¡adan that she sought to construct “a language designed specifically to provide a more adequate mechanism for expressing women’s perceptions” and that, in opposition, Klingon is “as ‘masculine’ as you could possibly get.”
In a response of approximately 250 words, please provide your best argument for Elgin’s claims. That is, regardless of your personal opinion, try to argue on behalf of Elgin based on the word choice in both languages.
For word choice, browse two sources, the LÃ¡adan core words (https://laadanlanguage.wordpress.com/laadan-reference/core-words/), as well as the online Klingon dictionary (http://klingonska.org/dict/?q=tlh%3A (Links to an external site.)
Look for 6 words: 3 words that are in Elgin’s core words that aren’t in the Klingon lexicon and 3 in the Klingon lexicon not in Elgin’s core words. None of these 6 should be in the Swadesh list
Then, please discuss these 6 words and why you think they would best make Elgin’s argument that Klingon is especially “masculine”, and LÃ¡adan is especially not. Part of your answer should make clear what you are assuming “masculine” meant to Elgin. Be sure to talk about each of the 6 words (it’s ok if some are discussed as a group).
