—from the Kohoutenberg Institute for Research and Application

Homophonic, google-skewed, and alinear anti-translations from our colleagues in Kohoutenberg. Retorico Unentesi, Feito Zahlt, Augen Konne, and Poss Facrienci show us what the Bouzingo might be writing if they’d come to age in the early 21st rather than early 19th Century avant-garde. There will eventually be scores of these handy little volumes, which can serve among other things as quasi-previews of the more straightforward translations yet to come from the Bouzingo project.
