Lips of Babel…

Have you ever stood in the center of a room filled with people speaking all sorts of different languages?  Ell Muliarchyk, former model, artist and linguist has.  She also can understand most of the languages.  From these experiences she dreamt up the vision of this project because it reminded her of the story of the Tower of Babel.  Thus, you have these beautiful bright lips spouting all sorts of nonsense reciting local tongue twisters, the perfect concept for the site that everybody’s talking about. There is a really fun interview to learn more behind the project here at Motilo. The goal is to get this video to 200,000 views and it is doable, as they are already around 155,000 views – so check it out and help them out.  Plus, it is beautiful to hear so many beautiful young ladies speak their native tongue, some of which are on the verge of being extinct, and have fun stumbling through the tongue twisters.

The lady behind the project, Elle Muliarchyk, in New York.

How many languages can you speak?  Are any of them more unique?  How often do you use them?

Much love,

B

  1. Unfortunately I can only speak English. I have no talent for languages. Boo! But it was so interesting listening to all the dialects! Thanks for the very interesting info!
