Questioner [PENDING REVIEW]

How do puns work with the *inaudible*

Brandon Sanderson [PENDING REVIEW]

How do what work?

Questioner [PENDING REVIEW]

Puns, because they're speaking different languages?

Brandon Sanderson [PENDING REVIEW]

Oh, yeah, the books are in translation; you have to imagine I am the translator, and what I am doing is, I am searching for something in our language that best replicates what they said in their language. That is the same thing for things like Veristitalian and stuff like that that uses Latin in our world. That's indicating it's using a similar older language in their world to build the thing. So you have to understand Wit doesn't actually say that exact pun, he says something that is a pun that I translate into English into a similar pun.

Questioner [PENDING REVIEW]

Both the languages described in Warbreaker and The Stormlight Archive contain a letter or glyph called the shash. Is that a consequence of both languages originating from a common root language on Yolen or is there something more complicated going on?

Brandon Sanderson [PENDING REVIEW]

Less complicated.
