Guys! Check out what I'm helping with!

The reason I jumped into this project wasn't just because of Sindarin - I saw this as a way to make it easier to teach how to read any language. It's time we linguists started using the technology available to us.

This looks fantastic! How can we help?

Money, and spread the word. And if the campaign is successful, possibly by being our lab rats for beta-testing.

Money, check. Tweeted and sent an e-mail to the mythopoeic society's e-mail list[1]. Maybe one to the LSA[2]?

If this Kickstarter was going on during tax return season, I would back at the $500 right now.  I've been hoping someone smarter than me would do something like this, or partner with DuoLingo, or something.
