    I've Been Messing Around Quite A Bit With Those Glyphs And Quotes, I've Taken the Annunciation Of "All Hail Megatron" (Antoura Houk, Or Something of the Matter) And Trying To Directly Apply it Into The Glyphs Between Common Characters, Reoccurences , And So Fourth. If This Was A Thought Out Language, This Goes far Deeper Than Elf From LOTR, This Goes Into Complexity Far Beyond Belief that Would Mean He Spent More Time On the Language than the Script. The other Option is That he Threw Some Really Cool Looking Symbols Together In A Semi Efficient looking pattern And Called it Cybertronian. I Have had very Minimal Progress, But I Have made Progress. "Antoura Houk" was taken from a sound sample from Blackout. The Spelling Of The Word In out Characters, Is Challenging At Least. There Are So Many Different Ways To Say it That it's essentially A Larger Scale of Sudoku. One Wrong Character And You Have It All Wrong. If Anyone has Made Any Progress Please Share.

    I gave up on semantic analyses of it after seeing those symbols being very randomly and repeatedly used in ROTF. Let's hope a future artbook or DVD featurette will have some commentaries on it.

    I agree with Sora. And the comparison to Tolkien isn't a fair one really. Tolkien was a linquist. The whole mythos of Middle Earth that he developed (Or as some of us think, merely recorded) was as a matrix for the languages he was developing. To my knowledge, there was no concerted effort by Hasbro or Bay's or the writer's crews to develop Cybertronian. Glyphs in ROTF notwithstanding.

    As a for instance, one can, using Tolkien's appendices, and notes and his stories, learn Elvish or Dwarvish fairly well. I know, 35 years ago (OK, a little more than that!), when I first started reading Tolkien, I was able to become somewhat fluent in one dialect of Elvish. (Sadly, I have lost most of it!) I don't see enough structure and exposure to Cybertronian to do that. Of course, those with more G1 knowledge than me (and that would be many of you, are welcome to help me out here if I'm wrong. Tee? Jazzy?)

    Wow! i can't believe I wrote this, I am SUCH an uber geek! No wonder I don't have a boyfriend! LOLOLOL

    Very cool, DS. And it shows my point very well. These are symbols, but what sounds or words specifically are they associated with? At this point they are a very cool looking random bunch of scribblings. That is cool artwork, but, Tempers Rose, not a language yet. Big jump between the page above and one of Tolkiens languages.
