Searching for trilingual narratives project
January 25, 2015 5:18 PM   Subscribe

Maybe ten years ago I read about a trilingual narratives project. The person who created the project had people who spoke at least three languages write a short personal narrative in each language and then go through each one and choose the “best” word for each idea, creating a custom language unique to their experience. I have searched high and low for any reference to this project and keep coming up dry, so I turn to you, MeFi. Has anyone heard of this project? In the event that I dreamed it, I call dibs. (I’m pretty sure I’m not smart enough to have made this up, so it’s got to be out there.)

what were the languages? Do you remember?

Response by poster: It was a number of languages--each participant spoke English, but the other two languages they spoke were all different. I think one might have been Brazilian Portuguese, one either Norwegian or Icelandic, maybe was all over the place, which is one of the things that made it so interesting.
