SYDNEY - April 3, 2015 - /PRNews/ --
Marc Bolh, founder of VidaLingua, has announced support for Khuzdûl in the next release of PhraseMates, a community driven language app
for mobile devices. The announcement comes after the abduction and harrowing escape from Rakiura Island, organized by
Mr. Bolh’s wife just a day before.
Khuzdûl Truth abducted Mr. Bolh while vacationing with his family in New Zealand, after requests to support the Khuzdûl language in the mobile app
were rebuffed by VidaLingua. The group claims the language they have spoken for decades
was the inspiration for the secret language of the dwarves in The Hobbit, by J.R.R. Tolkien.
“I was well-treated by the members of Khuzdûl Truth.” said Mr. Bolh. “They served me a feast of Wombat Mince and Koala Bangas. I never felt that my life was in danger. During my captivity on the Island of Rakiura, I learned of their decades long struggle to be recognized as the rightful heirs to the Khuzdûl language. As a result, I have made the decision to support Khuzdûl in future versions of PhraseMates.”
Mr. Bolh finished the press conference with the words “Baruk Khazâd! Khazâd ai-mênu!” meaning “Axes of the Dwarves! The Dwarves are upon you!”
