My productivity has reached rock-bottom and decided that it was a great plan to use a jackhammer, my plan to sing Still Alive for y’all was foiled by my cough. The fora, I procrastinate in lack lekie threads, and while the idea of a Stroop test in the respective conlang of a person might be an interesting idea to test the fluency of the conlanger and maybe give a bit more relevance to the idea of conlangs, I am not feeling eloquent enough at the moment to make an actual posting about this… so I decided that I was desperate enough to share some old rejistanian music with you. The song, which I only know as Al la barikadoj to be exact.
It is in very colloquial rejistanian. But then, these people are anarchists, they will consider the juniversiti rejistaniha just as much unwanted authority as the rest. It is also not a specific translation of the esperanto version, I had to take liberties and thus mixed themes from the English and German translation in as well.
