Mr. Barnes, I appreciate the comments. It would be interesting to explore NLP.
I’ve tried to fold a variety of psychological “stuff” into my work. In the current manuscript I’ve chosen to work with eight different species so communication is a barrier I’ve kind of hand-waved at with a “common” translator tongue and a couple variants of safety-focused sign. How language and language acquisition affects psychology is a side effect of telepathy for one of the species.
BTW, I haven’t seen any of your comments show up here in the forum itself. I’m struggling a little with the logic of wordpress site navigation, so that may be my failing in not knowing where to look.
