My name is So Hee Ahn and I am a rising junior at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT).
Currently, I am developing a research project at the MIT McGovern Institute for Brain Research that focuses on how the brain is activated by the usage of constructed languages and the role of generative properties in language. I became fascinated by the creative process behind constructed languages and their representation of the cultural significance of language in high school, so I am beyond excited to learn about your appreciation for Dothraki!
This project involves four constructed languages: Dothraki, High Valyrian, Esperanto, and Klingon. A really important part of this experiment is documenting the personal experiences of true Conlang lovers, and it would mean so much to me if you could take five minutes to fill out this quick survey:
Thank you so much, and I am looking forward to reading your responses.
