I found the messages on the Internet, but I wanted to translate them by hand. So that I knew they were were accurate, and also so I could add punctuation (for some reason, I have trouble reading stuff that's punctuated wrong. I'm picky that way). Oh yeah, I liked Last Guardian code the best (Artemis's will!!), but the Atlantis Complex one is a pretty close second. Poor Argon. The copies of the Eternity Code and the Arctic Incident at my local library didn't have codes, for some reason, but they were on the Internet, hurray! The Lost Colony code made me crack up. "It is fine to stab a demon with your sword; he will congratulate you for managing that, but only poor warriors lose their swords and then get stabbed with them".

Which do you think seems more suspicious? An alien-looking craft hovering in the yard of a country home, or a floating doorway with a centaur standing in it?—Domovoi Butler

I'm trying to care, Artemis. But I thought it was all supposed to be over when the fat lady sings. Well, she's singing, but it doesn't appear to be over.—Holly Short

As cool as it would be to walk up to someone and spout a string of Gnomish curses, I don't really care. I'm already learning Latin, and hopefully starting Greek soon.

We don't know how to pronounce any Gnommish words anyways, except maybe for the Gnommish equivalent of "Plunderer".

I used the code in TAFF to decode it, and can now read gnommish fluently. I haven't tried writing it yet, but I'll try that. Is it ever hard to make the symbols? I once tried writing in hieroglyphs, but I had trouble drawing the pictures. Does anyone know how to speak gnommish?
I'm fine, seeing as you asked.-Foaly
Gnommish… Gnommish… What blasted translation system doesn’t have Gnommish?

It doesn't really mention many words in books, which is a shame. It would be awesome if we could speak Gnommish beyond saying "moron", "plunderer", and "D'Arvit", but I guess it would take too long for Eoin Colfer to invent a whole language.
