>Tristan Alexander McLeay (nick 'zsau'). I've lived all my life in one
suburb or another (ie, one of two) of Melbourne (which is pronounced
/mElb@n/, not /mElbrrrrrrrrrrrrn/ or whatever you Rhotics insist on),
Victoria, Australia (which is pronounced /@'stræilja/, not
/'OOO:::streilia/). I speak Australian, and can understand every dialect
of Modern English I've yet encountered. I can speak (to a small degree)
Japanese, (to an even smaller degree) German, and can count to ten in
Italian and Spanish, and know (to varying degrees, depending on whether
or not they have words (by far the boringest part of conlanguing)) my
Languages webpages, currently being reconstructed:
