Formatting note; Hangul

I will no longer be including Hangul in my translations or neologism posts. I still use it for Kala, I use it everyday in my journal, however, it is cumbersome to transcribe with most online sites and is a mostly unnecessary step as anyone who truly follows this blog likely either doesn’t need the Hangul transcribed for them, or ignores it in favor of the lexical and grammatical features any way.

No worries. My love for the elegance, simplicity, and utilitarian nature of Hangul will never die.

Han Moya

I’ve made a small PDF to explain how I use Hangul to write Kala. Feel free to print it out and use it. If you need vocabulary, don’t forget that I update the lexicon on Frathwiki monthly.

The Warrior Obstructs the Way
It is enough.
You have waited for a long time.
You have restrained yourself from acting, waiting for things to take up their natural course once more.
But they have not done it.
So you must act.

From Path of the Warrior, by Lucas E. Schultz
