I found it out by reading the Artmeis Fowl Files. I translated the codes form books 1, 4 and 6! They were kind of dumb but a lot of fun deociding,and pretty funny.

I was making a dictionary, but that soon died out.

Thats actually a good idea! But it is actually really easy to memorize the gnommish alphabet but you have to keep practicing or you will forget some of the letters you don't use often like, z and q.

Sigh. I spent hours decoding the first time I read the book, then looked up Artemis on Wiki the next day and ... Oh, look, there it is. *Face palm*

First time I read it I didn't realise that it was even a code (I know) but when I was looking around ff.net and saw all the translations there suddenly went "OH". Then got the aff and started translating.

I translated it from book one. I translated each symbol into a letter. I wish we knew how to SPEAK it though. I wish Eoin Colfer would add more Gnommish dialouge.

I figured it out myself from the page in the first page. All my friends thought it was really dorky of me to do that, but I thought it was really fun. :)

Me too, we only know 'moron' in it, it would be so cool to have more in AC.

Yeah, and "D'Arvit" and "moron" aren't too helpful in trying to learn the language >.< I really hope he uses more words.

Yeah, knowing how to swear isn't going to get you anywhere fast.

I would also like more about whether or not each species has their own language, we know centaurs do but nothing about any others.

I do believe Holly uses another Gnommish word in TTP. Also, not sure if Eoin is just making words up that SOUND like Gaelic/Irish/Scottish/whatever the correct term is or if it actually is, but it sounds like it. Plus in TTP I believe we're told Holly and Mulch have a short quick conversation in which the insult Artemis in Gnommish. You don't actually hear what they say but Artemis did catch one of the words. Page 185

Also, I cheated and found it on the internet when I was younger. LOOOL. I did have it memorized but I lost it.

She uses another word other than cowpog? That was the insult towards Artemis, but I didn't find anything else. Well, I can't check, since I have a line of people reading book 6 at the moment :/

:lick: 'Tis okay :D

OT: I really hope Colfer adds in more of the Gnommish language.

(Off-topic) And another thing, I would like to see more of the fairy culture. We know loads about their technology, but not the actual culture itself, other than what the Book tells us.
