H3424: Language Decipherment and Linguistic Mysteries in Splash Fall 2018 (Oct. 27, 2018)
There are nearly 6000 languages spoken on the planet today, and throughout the course of human history countless languages have come and gone. If you want to try your hand at reaching into the past and trying to rebuild, reinvigorate, or rediscover lost languages, we'll be looking at modern mysteries of this sort through NACLO puzzles and other real-world linguistic examples. No knowledge in linguistics is required - anyone who loves working on logic problems or puzzles is welcome to join us!
