We should have a "post your keyboard option menu" thread.


My "French" keyboard is actually a customized multilingual Dvorak layout that can type pretty much any language that uses the Latin alphabet.

You are a language nerd when you try to click on the screenshot because you need to see some Devanagari script NOW. Then you are unhappy that it takes all of twenty seconds to set it up on your screen. Then you spend a long time playing with it just because it is beautiful. Then you spend an even longer time playing with other writing systems you can't understand.

Why did you have to remind me they are here on the computer?! Now how can I focus on the languages I already have set up on this computer when my list look so boring in comparison?!

Oh well, wanderlust happens!

WHAT NOW?!? Also it's set for English-International instead of English-United States so I can type most letters in the Latin alphabet.
I don't even know the scripts I have on there, they just look nice. I know a few Russian letters though. And a few Chinese characters.

When you stand in Changi airport in Singapore, and the main thing you are thinking about is the state of your language learning log

When you go over to the "hobbies" section of a bookstore and are unsure as to why it
lacks language learning materials.

When, while playing a video game, the Japanese audio and English text make you think "I
wish I was learning Japanese; this would be great for L-R".

They have a whole (albeit small) section for us! :)

This may sound gross, but you're a language nerd (or already freak), when you take language materials instead of a newspaper when you go to the WC!!
