Doc Rat: Code of Honor

The rabbits may be a secretive and clannish bunch, but they seem to have a very strict sense of honor and decency.

Do you think Jenner was inspired by Bill Holbrook in this regard? The K&K rabbits live apart from the rest of civilization -- even from fellow underground animals -- and stand out in many mostly secret ways.

Entirely possible.

So, o great linguist,

What are they saying? Is this rabbit language based on a real language out there?

Scott, I'll copy this to your email since without a login you won't get a notification.

I've chatted with Doctor J about this. He's developed enough Lapine to make it as self-consistent as possible, and even showed me his notebook at Anthrocon (a treat!). He's not going as far as those who have developed Klingon and Na'vi, but he wanted to have more than just gibberish. He echoed the sounds of the lapine language in Richard Adams' Watership Down. What I saw impressed me - he's not only a doctor, a cartoonist and a fine writer, but he has a feel for how morphology and syntax works, and the skeleton of the language he has constructed is sophisticated and delightful. I personally wish he would do more, but it seems sufficient for the purposes of the story arc.
