@Stoori@kirja.casa that’s exactly the case! The whole magic system relies on translation, there are many footnotes and even debates about etymology, if that’s your thing :)

2022 Reading Goal
65% complete! joachim has read 34 of 52 books.
As the title says: queer solarpunk first-contact sci-fi!
Recommended for anyone that liked:
- the first book of the Wanderer series by Becky Chambers
- for anyone solar-curious
- for nerds with kids
- for nerds without kids
- for fans of peer-to-peer mesh networks (yes, really)
It definitely has some weird bits, not necessarily in a negative sense. I enjoyed this a bunch and kept telling people about during my travels in the past weeks—so that's probably a better recommendation indicator than anything!
The author even coined a potential subgenre in describing the book: diaperpunk!
