A very interesting article on what it really means to work out a new language and how that translates into fic:

lLinguistics in Arrival

Mind you, our Daniel is even more of a polyglot than Louise :) but I thought there were some nice touches here.

So go write Daniel fic. That's always a plus. :D

Fascinating! I've not seen the movie but I kind of want to now. Some of that went right over my head but I do understand, and agree with, the immersion idea. You might learn a language by listening and speaking it an hour a day but until you immerse yourself with native speakers, you're never going to understand it.
