– Kind Shaun, we all requested   Leave a comment


Shaun vilifies Shem – Shaun in a barrel rolls downriver -Issy bids him fond farewell.

In the vilification of Shem, Shaun refers to Shem’s “root language” (424.17). It seems to be a compound noun, derived from Norse Mythology: “Ullhodturdenweirmudgaardgringringnirurdrmolnirfenrirlukkilokkibaugimandodrrerinsurtkrinmgrêrnrackinarockar!”

It ends with a phonetic version of Ragnarok (final destiny of the gods*). So, Shem’s is a root language that ends with destruction and regeneration.
