A blend of incomprehensible symbols and unwritable sounds (Which Ancient Language Are You?)

Well, this doesn't bode too well for my writing future - a blend of the incomprehensible and the unwritable. At least it explains the schizoid mess.

You are Akkadian, a blend of the incomprehensible symbols of the Sumerians with the unwritable sounds of the early Semitic peoples. However, the writing just doesn't suit the words and doesn't represent everything needed, so you end up a schizoid mess. Invented in Babylon, you're probably to blame for that tower story. However, crazy as you are, you're much loved and appreciated, and remain actively in use by records keepers long after schools have switched to other languages.

Here's a link to the test if you have a lot of time on your hands. Actually the questions are fun.

I took the quiz and ended up with the same results! :) Not really sure how the questions coordinated, but it was fun. Thanks for the link!

Mine says:

Language of the Norse, Older Futhark! Thirty symbols, all told. And no hardier, more warrior-like tongue has ever graced the longships of the Viki or left the Celts and Saxons in such quivering fear. There's only one drawback, that being you died 800 years ago.

Dewey, I'm quivering just hearing about it. Too bad about your recent demise, it hasn't seemed to affect your reading or blogging any.
